Richard Hill describes what he has called the nuntius nuclei—a collection of brain nuclei that form an integrated system that produce and distribute neurotransmitters throughout the brain and form what has been described as the “chemical balance” of the brain. Richard suggests that curiosity activates all the nuntius nuclei and produces the most beneficial brain state for therapeutic change and learning—a “curious” state of mind that is beneficial for health and well-being.
