This book, a member of the Series in Affective Science, is a unique interdisciplinary sequence of articles on the cognitive neuroscience of emotion by some of the most well-known researchers in the area. It explores what is known about cognitive processes in emotion at the same time it reviews the processes and anatomical structures involved in emotion, determining whether there is something about emotion and its neural substrates that requires they be studied as a separate domain. Divided into four major focal points and presenting research that has been performed in the last decade, this book covers the process of emotion generation, the functions of amygdala, the conscious experience of emotion, and emotion regulation and dysregulation. Collectively, the chapters constitute a broad but selective survey of current knowledge about emotion and the brain, and they all address the close association between cognitive and emotional processes. By bringing together diverse strands of investigation with the aim of documenting current understanding of how emotion is instantiated in the brain, this book will be of use to scientists, researchers, and advanced students of psychology and neuroscience.

Richard D. Lane and Lynn Nadel are both at University of Arizona.Review:
"[A]n outstanding book on current research on the neurobiology of emotion. Edited and authored by internationally recognized researchers, this book is an exceptionally valuable contribution to this field. The purpose, according to the editors, is to document the current understanding of how emotion is instantiated in the brain; and to encourage the cognitive neuroscientific study of emotion, which, they claim, has not until recently been studied within this framework. The intended audience is . . . workers in the fields of neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychology. It is also appropriate for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. . . . The chapters are written by well-known authors, such as Darnasio, Kolb, Ledoux, Trenel, Heilman, Davidson, among others. . . . This is an extremely valuable book on the neurological basis of emotion. Researchers as well as clinicians will, without a doubt, benefit from reading and referring to this book."--Doody's Electronic Journal
