Although the prevalent view of emotion and decision making is derived from the notion that there are dual systems of emotion and reason, a modulatory relationship more accurately reflects the current research in affective neuroscience and neuroeconomics. Studies show two potential mechanisms for affect's modulation of the computation of subjective value and decisions. Incidental affective states may carry over to the assessment of subjective value and the decision, and emotional reactions to… Expand
How incidental affect and emotion regulation modulate decision making under risk
Emotions have long been suspected to play an important role in decision making, e.g. theoretic approaches propose that both cognitive and affective processes play a role in the valuation of choiceExpand
Cooperative versus competitive influences of emotion and cognition on decision making: A primer for psychiatry research
TLDR
Seven theoretical perspectives that make explicit assumptions and predictions about the interaction between emotion and cognition are described: affect as information, the affect heuristic, risk as feelings, hot versus cool cognition, the somatic parker hypothesis, prospect theory, and fuzzy-trace theory. Expand
The effect of emotion regulation on risk-taking and decision-related activity in prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Overall, emotion regulation was followed by less risky decisions, which was further reflected in an increase in activation in brain regions in dorsolateral and ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and cingulate cortex, suggesting that altering incidental emotions using reappraisal strategies impacts on subsequent risk-taking in decision-making. Expand
The interaction between emotion and economic decision-making
Emotions play an important role in daily life decisions. For example, we are likely to choose, judge, or evaluate things around us in different ways depending on whether we are feeling sad, anxious,Expand
Emotion Regulation Modulates Dietary Decision-Making via Activity in the Prefrontal–Striatal Valuation System
TLDR
The results indicate that emotional states are indeed important for food choice and that the process of emotion regulation might boost the subsequent processing of health attributes, possibly via neural reward circuits. Expand
Emotions and Financial Decision Making
In this chapter, we discuss how theorizing about the role of emotions in financial decision making has changed over the years and review results that indicate the impact of feelings on differentExpand

  • 2016
TLDR
Three complementary ways to move the neuroscientific study of emotion and decision making from agenda setting to theory building are discussed, concluding that emotions are not rational or irrational per se: How (un)reasonable their influence is depends on their fit with the environment. Expand
The neural dynamics underlying the interpersonal effects of emotional expression on decision making
TLDR
Brain responses to utilitarian feedback combined with angry or happy faces in competitive and cooperative contexts suggest that interpersonal emotions shape decisions during both automatic motivational salience valuation (FRN) and conscious cognitive appraisal stages of processing, in which different emotional expressions exert interpersonal influence through different routes. Expand
Neural processes in antecedent anxiety modulate risk-taking behavior
TLDR
Light is shed on the neurobiology of antecedent anxiety and risk-taking and potential insight is provided into understanding how real-world anxieties can impact decision-making processes is provided. Expand
Emotion and decision making.
TLDR
This work organizes and analyze what has been learned from the past 35 years of work on emotion and decision making and proposes the emotion-imbued choice model, which accounts for inputs from traditional rational choice theory and from newer emotion research, synthesizing scientific models. Expand

Affective state and decision-making in the Ultimatum Game

Skin conductance activity was higher for unfair offers and was associated with the rejection of unfair offers in the Ultimatum Game, and this pattern was only observed for offers proposed by human conspecifics, but not for offers generated by computers. Expand
Anxiety and Decision-Making
TLDR
It is proposed that the neural circuitry supporting fear learning and regulation may mediate the influence of anxiety upon choice and suggest that techniques for altering fear and anxiety may also change decisions. Expand

TLDR
This review explores insights into the relations between emotion and cognition that have resulted from studies of the human amygdala, suggesting that the classic division between the study of emotion and Cognition may be unrealistic and that an understanding of human cognition requires the consideration of emotion.
