[Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology]
What makes us happy? What makes us sad? How do we come to feel a sense of enthusiasm? What fills us with lust, anger, fear, or tenderness? Traditional behavioral and cognitive neuroscience have yet to provide satisfactory answers. The book presents an affective neuroscience approach — which takes into consideration basic mental processes, brain functions, and emotional behaviors that all mammals share — to locate the neural mechanisms of emotional expression. It reveal — for the first time — the deep neural sources of our values and basic emotional feelings.
