Brain research findings regarding neurotransmitters and
experiments for well-being and positivity explore concepts
of visual perception and identity.
This book is dedicated to bring positivity and well-being by analyzing
and changing the way we see and perceive the world.
I spent the past four years of my life dealing with various
mental health issues and an identity dilemma.
I didn’t know what I’m supposed to do or who
I’m supposed to be.
Expectations of success in my field of study weighed heavily
on my psyche. I questioned my abilities and the direction of my life.
Thus, creating an endless loop of negativity, resulting in
depression and anxiety. After encountering multiple mental
breakdowns and creating a hostile environment, I started
reaching out to therapists to climb out of this chasm.
After learning about the human mind, I realized that the problems
I faced stemmed from the way I perceived the world, not from
the world itself. By shifting my perspective, I was able to change
how I perceived my surroundings in a positive light.
I invited readers to participate in an experiment proven to
improve positivity and well-being by increasing brain activity
and releasing specific neurotransmitters. Participants were
asked to perform a breathing exercise to focus on their
present moment and draw the sensations they feel around
them in order to portray their perception of the world.
I wanted to share these results for others to see and
experience another’s Umwelt.
The title and overarching theme of Grey Matter and newsprint are in reference to the outer
surface layer of our brain composed of cell bodies and the title White Matter is in reference
to the inner layer of our brain composed of axons. Two parts of our brain appear gray or
white based on their density in MRI and fMRI imaging. Hence, White Matter is packaged
inside the outer layer of Grey Matter and sealed in a plastic bag as a whole.
