About this title


Emotion, by Annett Schirmer, is a comprehensive text that integrates traditional psychological theories and cutting-edge neuroscience research to explain the nature and role of emotions in human functioning. Written in an engaging style, the book explores emotions at the behavioral, physiological, mental, and neurofunctional (i.e., chemical, metabolic, and structural) levels, and examines each in a broad context, touching on different theoretical perspectives, regulatory processes, development, and culture, among others. Providing greater insight and depth than existing texts, the book offers a holistic view of the field, giving students a broader understanding of the mechanisms underlying emotions and enabling them to appreciate the role emotions play in their lives. In dedicated chapters, the text covers past and current theories of emotion, individual emotions and their bodily representation, the role of emotions for behavior and cognition, as well as interindividual differences.

About the Author:

Annett Schirmer completed an undergraduate degree in psychology in 1999 at Leipzig University, Germany’s second-oldest university and where psychology was first established as an academic discipline. She obtained her doctorate in life sciences from Leipzig University in 2002 for research she completed at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences. Dr. Schirmer’s subsequent professional career took her to the United States and later to Singapore, where she is now an associate professor of psychology at the National University of Singapore (NUS). At NUS, she directs an active lab in which undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students conduct research in the area of affective and social neuroscience. More specifically, Dr. Schirmer and her students address questions about the mental and neural underpinnings of emotional communication. Dr. Schirmer teaches a wide range of topics including emotions, cognition, communication, and neuroscience. She has won teaching awards for both undergraduate and graduate teaching.
