Some of the Selecao squad also appeared emotional after the team’s tense penalty shootout victory over Chile in the last-16 tie in Belo Horizonte.
That reaction led to Brazil's technical director and 1970 World Cup-winner Carlos Alberto criticising the team for allowing their feelings to take over, and Scolari hiring psychologist Regina Brandao to work with the players - a move praised by Neymar.
"I had never done anything like it before and I am quite enjoying it," the Barcelona star said.
"It is not only us in football, who are surrounded by emotions every day and need psychologists. I think it could do every person good, to make one more relaxed.
"We have a very good relationship with Regina Brandao. She is a great person. I am learning a lot and I hope to continuing doing it."
Scolari’s team will be hoping to progress to the semi-finals of the World Cup when they play Colombia in their quarter-final clash in Fortaleza on Friday.
