Book Description

The book “The Neuroscience of Emotion” (PDF) provides a revolutionary new paradigm for the study of emotion from a neuroscientific perspective across all species. This accessible and original book recasts the field of emotion research and reveals that in order to understand emotion, we need to discover its organic roots in animals and people. It was written by David J. Anderson and Ralph Adolphs, two outstanding authorities on the study of emotion. The authors of this book are David J. Anderson and Ralph Adolphs. It is only through a comparative strategy that includes studies on the molecular, mobile, systems, and cognitive levels that we will be able to understand what feelings are, how they developed, how the mind shapes their development, and even how we might plan them into robots in the future.

Adolphs and Anderson provide a comprehensive basis for seriously considering feelings as evolved; functionally defined biological states by demonstrating that sentiments are shared across species and employed in certain mind circuits. In doing so, they provide evidence that feelings are useful. The authors discuss the findings and methodologies from contemporary neuroscientific examinations of emotion, and they conclude with a summary of many theories as well as prospective research directions.

Featuring full-color images throughout, The Neuroscience of Emotion: A New Synthesis brings together the most recent findings in the field of neuroscience to provide a more in-depth understanding of how the emotional processes of all people operate.

“It is not feasible to comprehend the process of biological evolution without taking into account feelings and events that are pertinent.” The authors, Anderson and Adolphs, whose individual reputations have been established on the study of human and animal emotions, have developed the greatest and most comprehensive textbook on the subject that has yet to be published. This is an ebook that cannot be overlooked.” The author of “The Strange Order of Things: Life, Feeling, and the Making of Cultures,” Antonio Damasio

This entire e-book is driven by a clear and concise line of reasoning, which not only results in an engaging narrative but also in credible scientific information. The book is unrivaled in its range of coverage, depth of experience, explication of procedures and approaches, and consistently sound scientific sense when it comes to the topic of emotion. An agenda-setting discussion.” — Patricia Churchland, author of the book “Braintrust: What Neuroscience Tells Us about Morality.”
