Overview

This unique book draws its inspiration from the belief that the role of cognition in emotion is an important yet relatively neglected aspect of cognitive neuroscience. By carefully examining underlying assumptions and the nature of the phenomena under investigation, editors and contributors reach the surprising conclusion that emotion - in all of its mystery and ineffability - can be studied without compromise within the field of cognitive neuroscience.. "By gathering diverse strands of research from a host of contributors, Cognitive Neuroscience of Emotion is appropriate for a broad array of professionals, advanced undergraduates, and graduate students. It will undoubtedly become an essential resource for all those working in the fields of neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychology, and it will appeal to anyone interested in the neural underpinnings of human behavior.
