Why do we feel better after a good cry? What might the length of your earlobes have to do with jealousy? These and other questions can be answered by looking at the research of emotions. Claudia Hammond takes nine universal emotions in turn and looks at the science behind them, combining the latest theories and discoveries from neuroscientists and psychologists with everyday human experience. In a highly entertaining and thought-provoking journey through the science of feelings, the book asks how the brain and body interact to produce emotions, and what, if anything, we can do to harness them. With the help of scientists, artists, therapists, and philosophers, the author examines the physiological and sociological origins of emotions.
