Summary:
The idea that a specific brain circuit constitutes the emotional brain shaped thinking about emotion and the brain for many years. Recent behavioural, neuropsychological, neuroanatomy, and neuroimaging research, however, suggests that emotion interacts with cognition in the brain. In this book, Luiz Pessoa moves beyond the debate over functional specialization, describing the many ways that emotion and cognition interact and are integrated in the brain.
