hypothalamic sites, as well as many zones of the mesencephalic perventricular gray. 40 This suggested that "pleasure approach" and "distress avoidance" were elaborated by specific brain circuits. Presently a few investigators are working out the anatomical and neurochemical details of these circuits, and this work now provides the deepest insights into the intrinsic emotional nature of the mammalian brain. For initiating this seminal work, Walter Hess was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1949 "for his discovery of the functional organization of the interbrain as a coordinator of the activities of the internal organs." Hess's work continues to inspire lines of investigation that are bringing us ever closer to a lasting material understanding of emotionality in both humans and animals.
