Most academics agree that emotions and moods are related but distinct phenomena. The present study assessed emotion-mood distinctions among a non-academic population and compared these views with distinctions proposed in the literature. Content analysis of responses from 106 participants identified 16 themes, with cause (65% of respondents), duration (40%), control (25%), experience (15%), and consequences (14%) the most frequently cited distinctions. Among 65 contributions to the academic… 
Development and validation of the emotion and mood components of Anxiety Questionnaire
A systematic review of the studies measuring mood and emotion in response to music.
Definitional and conceptual problems are of continuing concern to researchers in the study of music and emotion (Eerola & Vuoskoski, 2013; Scherer, 2004). A prevailing issue is the conceptual

A taxonomy of mood research in affective computing is proposed based on a literature review of 1,264 peer-reviewed publications to provide researchers with a broad overview of the research as well as areas of applications in which mood is addressed.
Emotional reactions to music in a nationally representative sample of Swedish adults
Empirical studies have indicated that listeners value music primarily for its ability to arouse emotions. Yet little is known about which emotions listeners normally experience when listening to
Why moods change: their appropriateness and connection to beliefs
It is argued that once the notion of belief-responsiveness is examined and a wider range of examples are looked at, it can be seen that moods are belief-responsive and can be evaluated for appropriateness along a number of dimensions.
Positive mood boosts the expression of a dispositional need for closure
The three studies examined the hypothesis that positive mood increases the degree to which epistemic motivation, i.e., the need for closure (NFC), affects the way in which an individual processes information (heuristic vs. systematic processing) show that only under positive mood, NFC level of an individual is consistent with his or her style of information processing.
Emotional responses to music: the need to consider underlying mechanisms.
It is concluded that music evokes emotions through mechanisms that are not unique to music, and that the study of musical emotions could benefit the emotion field as a whole by providing novel paradigms for emotion induction.
Boredom Begs to Differ: Differentiation From Other Negative Emotions
Boredom is mild in negative valence, low in arousal, is associated with low perceived challenge and low perceived meaningfulness, and has low relevance to moral judgment and behavior.
Individual Differences in Emotional Response to Music
Although emotional experiences with music have been enjoyed for millennia, research involving music has focused primarily on emotions perceived rather than felt, and not much research exists into
Semantic and affective manifestations of ambi (valence)
Self-reported mixed emotions represent actual feelings compared to knowledge about the stimulus, and a strong semantic component and a weak experiential component of self-reports in the case of pictorial stimuli are suggested.

Experiments in which happy or sad moods were induced in subjects by hyp- notic suggestion to investigate the influence of emo- tions on memory and thinking found that subjects exhibited mood-state-dependent memory in recall of word lists, personal experiences recorded in a daily diary, and childhood experiences.
Moods: Their Personal Dynamics and Significance
Wessman presents a summary of the literature on moods and discusses in detail much of the work that he and his colleagues have been doing in this area for more than a decade. Wessman draws no sharp
Cognitive domains of the mood system.

On the Primacy of Cognition.
Zajonc and I differ greatly in our conceptualization of emotion and its relations with cognition, as well as in our evaluation of the evidence. My reply is in two parts. First, I discuss the
What are the Data of Emotion
The NATO Conference at Ciocco focused on cognitive theories of emotion. This included both the hermeneutic development of older views, along with the exposure of space-age models from artificial
A broader conception of mood experience.
The experience of a mood consists of more than emotional states such as happiness, anger, sadness, or fear, and a multidomain framework is described for organizing such experience, and 2 studies are reported that analyzed separately emotion-related and emotion-management-related mood experiences.
Rationality and the Emotions
In an earlier paper (Elster, I989 a), I discussed the relation between rationality and social norms. Although I did mention the role of the emotions in sustaining social norms, I did not focus
The Referential Structure of the Affective Lexicon

The Experience and Meta-Experience of Mood
Mood experience is comprised of at least two elements: the direct experience of the mood and a meta-level of experience that consists of thoughts and feelings about the mood. In Study 1, a
