Product description


“Fox's interests center on emotion, attention, and memory, and here she focuses on the cognitive neuroscience of emotion, offering a richly informative introduction to contemporary research and thinking from that perspective. What really distinguishes the book, however, are its breadth and Fox's emphasis on methodology and the necessity of being clear about levels of analysis. The book is also noteworthy for its promotion of individual differences and the study of emotional disorders as core concerns of the science of emotion. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.” -CHOICE
'In this timely and significant book, Fox deftly integrates findings from cognitive psychology and from neuroscience in presenting a sophisticated and comprehensive discussion of the science of emotion. She offers important insights that sharpen our knowledge of the links among cognition, affect, personality, and neurobiology. This volume should be on the bookshelf of every scientist or student who is interested in understanding the interplay of psychological and biological aspects of emotion.' - Professor Ian Gotlib, Stanford University
'Elaine Fox's book presents a comprehensive review of recent research linking mind, brain and body. It provides a unique perspective on the cognitive, neurobiological and genetic foundations of emotion, with clear summaries of the competing models, and indicates how they can be integrated. Its breadth of coverage makes it valuable to students first encountering this field as well as researchers. Each chapter tackles a key area, making apparent the development of ideas from early theorists, allowing current research findings to be understood in a historical perspective. The links between theory driven research and clinical application are especially welcome, and will enrich the research agenda in this dynamic and expanding field.' Professor Jon May, University of Plymouth

From the Back Cover

Emotion Science is a state-of-the-art introduction to the study of emotion. Drawing on a wide array of research from psychology and neuroscience, the author presents an integrated picture of our current understanding of normal as well as disordered emotions such as anxiety and depression. The author draws a clear distinction between emotions, moods and feelings, and suggests how they can be understood within an integrated model.
The book is ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology and related areas, and will be a useful reference for active researchers.
