Feeling Brain: The Biology and Psychology of Emotions


Product Description

Published USA, 2015
The study of emotions has emerged as a central topic of scientific inquiry in the new discipline of affective neuroscience. The authors of this new book trace how work in this rapidly expanding field speaks to fundamental questions about the nature of emotion: What is the function of emotions? What is the role of the body in emotions? What are 'feelings' and how do they relate to emotions? Why are emotions so difficult to control? Is there an emotional brain? The authors tackle these questions and more in their cutting- edge emotion research.

Elizabeth Johnston and Leah Olson teach in the psychology faculty at Sarah Lawrence College in the USA.
