Emotion in the Mind and Body (Nebraska Symposium on Motivation)
ISBN 10: 3030274721
ISBN 13: 978-3030274726
As the 66th volume in the prestigious Nebraska Series on Motivation, this book focuses on understanding emotion and motivation as two factors that not only influence social and cognitive processes, but also shape the way we navigate our social world. Research on emotion has increased significantly over the past two decades, pulling from scholarship in psychology, neuroscience, medicine, political science, sociology, and even computer science. This volume is informed by the growing momentum in the resulting interdisciplinary field of affective science, and examines the role of emotion and motivation in our perceptions, decision-making, and social interactions, and attempts to understand the neurobiological mechanisms that support these processes across the lifespan in both healthy and clinical populations.
Included among the chapters:
- Emotion concept development from childhood to adulthood
- Evolving psychological and neural models for the regulation of emotion
- Pathways to motivational impairments in psychopathology
- A valuation systems perspective on motivation
- Reproducible, generalizable brain models of affective processes
Emotion in the Mind and Body is a comprehensive and compelling rendering of the current state of the interdisciplinary field of affective science, and will be of interest to researchers and students working in psychology and neuroscience, as well as medicine, political science, and sociology.
