TED Talk - The Hidden Power of Smiling


Ron Gutman highlights what scientific research reveals about the superpower of smiling. A universal practice, even among the most isolated tribes, scientists and thought leaders have long pondered the purpose that this facial expression plays in the human species. Charles Darwin theorized that the act of smiling is something we do to make others feel better, as oppose to the result of feeling good.

Gutman states that today’s MRI technology backs up these theories. “Facial feedback modifies the neural processing of emotional content in the brain, in a way that helps us feel better when we smile,” he cites a German study. “Smiling stimulates our brain reward mechanism in a way that even chocolate -- a well-regarded pleasure inducer -- cannot match.”
