An experimental fact we know is that a psychostimulant works by producing 38 Frederic Perez-Alvarez and Carme Timoneda-Gallart wakefulness, concentration, and other "side effects" like anorexia as a consequence of alert alarm state. In the addictive state, deprivation is followed by fatigue, irritability, hyperactivity, tremor, anxiety, depression, and so on. Exactly, this constellation of manifestations match impulsive behaviors.

Once the cortex received the delayed fearful information coming from the thalamus, the electrophysiologic activity of both the cortex and the amygdala did not change at all their electrophysiologic pattern of activity, which allows us to deduce not only that the cortex is not substantially influenced by the delayed information, but also that the cortex does not influence the amygdalar activity so triggered.

On the 24 Frederic Perez-Alvarez and Carme Timoneda-Gallart contrary, unconstructive, unreasonable, debilitating beliefs produce painful behaviors. For instance, beliefs like "smart people know everything, only dumb people have to ask questions", "smart people answer quickly", " giving some answer is better than saying, I don't know", "mathematics is something only a genius can comprehend", "mathematics is not supposed to make sense", and so on determine another kind of behavior. Constructive beliefs translate "can" whereas unconstructive beliefs do "can't".
