After reading some really compelling arguments on the subject, I have just one question: in what contexts can disconnects arise between one's physiological state and emotional/psychological state?

It seems like there are a lot of potential contexts. It's interesting to think about cases where this is normal and healthy and cases where it might be pathological.

Edited to add: I think this article is also relevant:
