Botox study: See no feeling, feel no feeling.

Just casual. Relaxed.

 

A study from the University of Southern California reports that people who have had Botox become less capable of feeling emotion over time.

 

It’s to do with the fact that we process emotions by mimicking them physically ourselves. If you can’t mimic an expression that you associate with an emotion, you become less inclined to experience that emotion.

 

In the words of Karl Pilkington, weird innit?
