Heart Neurons

Most people are quite familiar with the concept of neurons in the brain. Fewer seem aware of the fact that there are neurons in the heart. Heart Neurons? Absolutely. For those of you who are interested in this relatively new area of ongoing research, The Institute of Heart Math has published photographs of neurons in the heart--some taken with a confocal microscope. Researchers call it "the little brain in the heart." Amazing!
