How your Friends are Shaping your Brain
Through the evolution of neuroscience and psychological research, we have come to understand that social relationships have a profound affect on the size and shape of a person's brain structure. The nature of your social relationships and the specific elements in your social identity not only affect how you feel, but how your brain functions. So that annoying co-worker, or passive aggressive parent, is not just influencing your day, they are potentially influencing the very structure of your brain. Through awareness of one's social identities and relationships, you have the potential to decide who gets to shape your brain and consequently mold your character, personality, and way of being in the world.
