Neurophysiology, Learning, and Emotional Responses

Liberty's Edge

A bit of googling and I was surprised to find little on the subject.

Anyone ever experience (especially regularly) a raw, tearful, emotional response to learning something new and particularly awesome?

I'm interested in the neurological reasons for this. Mathematical or scientific epiphanies can often bring me to tearful excited laughter (and I mean actual happy tears). I don't mean to say that this happens when I devise or derive something new myself, only that it happens when I gain an understanding of a thing that had particularly eluded me.

Weird, I know.
