When an event, such as one that impacts human emotion, occurs:

a. What gets effected in the brain (what chemical transaction takes place)?

b. If the event is upsetting/depressing to a specific individual, how resiliant are human beings to recover from that upset? And can that human recover fully, or are they changed/affected forever (what does that recovery bounce-back require)?

c. If the event is 'a change for the better', can that 'good change' adversely effect a person to where the 'good change' is nullified. (This may not make sense - but for now let us go with it)

d. What are the chemical differences between good and bad events (emotional impacts)

e. With respect to 'the rest' of a persons life, how impactful are good or bad events (or does this simply get calculated by the size of emotional anomoly)?

f. If a person is religious, how do these good or bad events affect the religious ground?

g. If a person is impacted by a good or bad event, what role does religion play in the foundation of one's emotional footing?

I suspect that these questions are quite general, but I do not know how to pose them in a 'more concrete fashion'.
