It would not be possible to discuss the integrative aspects of brain function without considering the operations that arise in large-scale neural systems; and it would be unreasonable not to single-out emotion among the critical integrative operations arising in that level. Yet, throughout the twentieth century, the integrated brain and mind have often been discussed with hardly any acknowledgment that emotion does exist, let alone that it is an important function and that understanding its… Expand
Feelings and Emotions: Feeling States in Emotion
ABSTRACT An essential feature of emotional states is their association with change in autonomic function. The importance of these changes lies in the fact that in many theoretical accounts of emotionExpand

TLDR
The significance of this extended postnatal developmental period for brain maturation and how brain evolution has encompassed certain biological changes and predispositions that, with the authors' modern lifestyle, represent risk factors for well-being are considered. Expand
Human Emotions: A Conceptual Overview
Concepts related to human affect have been attracting growing interest among psychologists, medical researchers, and neuroscientists, and as the present volume shows, affective processes are becomingExpand

We suggest a united concept of consciousness and emotion, based on the systemic cognitive neuroscience perspective regarding organisms as active and goal-directed. We criticize the idea thatExpand

Neurovisceral integration, emotions and health: An update
Abstract In the present paper we describe a model of neurovisceral integration in which a set of neural structures involved in cognitive, affective and autonomic regulation are related to heart rateExpand
Stop that! Inhibition, sensitization, and their neurovisceral concomitants.
TLDR
It is shown that inhibition is important for adaptive behavior across a number of levels of system functioning and both central and peripheral inhibitory processes may be linked by a network of neural structures that guide the organism from one state of relative stability to another. Expand

Cortical Systems for the Recognition of Emotion in Facial Expressions
TLDR
It is found that all subjects recognized happy expressions normally but that some subjects were impaired in recognizing negative emotions, especially fear and sadness, and this data provides evidence for a neural system important to processing facial expressions of some emotions, involving discrete visual and somatosensory cortical sectors in right hemisphere. Expand
Impaired recognition of emotion in facial expressions following bilateral damage to the human amygdala
TLDR
Findings suggest the human amygdala may be indispensable to recognize fear in facial expressions, but is not required to recognize personal identity from faces, and constrains the broad notion that the amygdala is involved in emotion. Expand
Fear and the human amygdala
TLDR
The results show that bilateral, but not unilateral, damage to the human amygdala impairs the processing of fearful facial expressions, and it is proposed that the amygdala is required to link visual representations of facial expressions with representations that constitute the concept of fear.
