Lisa Feldman Barrett: You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them

Can you look at someone's face and know what they're feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are. She shares the results of her exhaustive research -- and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.

Where in the world is it easiest to get rich? | Harald Eia | TEDxOslo

In which society is it easiest to get rich? Contrary to common belief, it is not countries like the US or the UK that create the highest number of rich people per capita, but Nordic social democracies like Norway and Sweden. Counter-intuitive as it may sound, high taxes, generous welfare states, and strong unions make a better environment for the people who want to earn huge amounts of money, than free markets, low taxes, and minimal government intervention. Harald Eia is a trained sociologist who works in television with comedy and documentaries.

Christopher Ategeka: How adoption worked for me

Talent is universal, but opportunity isn't, says TED Fellow Christopher Ategeka. In this charming, hopeful talk, Ategeka tells his story of being orphaned at a young age -- and how being adopted gave him the chance to experience a new culture, acquire an education and live up to his full potential.

Operation PTSD: Veterans healing themselves through meditation | Erik Younger | TEDxWilmingtonWomen

About 22 United States veterans commit suicide every day, and veterans make up 18% of the country's suicides although they are only 8.5% of the population. When Erik Younger returned from combat, he thought he knew what the enemy looked like. But returning to civilian life held life-threatening perils of its own. Erik began experiencing chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, nightmares, hypervigilance, insomnia and depression. In 2014, he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, which has no cure. Pursuit of a daily meditation practice has provided Erik with release from the intense symptoms he experiences, and he believes it can help others dealing with traumatic stress to lead happier, healthier lives. Looking to provide hope and help for fellow soldiers suffering from PTSD, Erik founded Vetitation, a training program that teaches veterans how to meditate.
