Finnish Scientists: How Emotions Are Experienced In The Body

How emotions are mapped in the body:

When we feel happy, anxious  or depressed,  our body feels certain sensations as well. Finnish scientists from Aalto University have found out with which parts of the body we feel love or experience other emotional states. When they asked people to map out where they felt different emotions on their bodies, they found that the results were surprisingly consistent, even across cultures. The strongest sensation parts on the body they marked with yellow and red. Parts of the body in which the experimental participants felt bradyesthesia (obtusion of emotions), painted in blue and black.
