Language, Emotions, and Cultures: Emotional Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis

An emotional version of Sapir-Whorf hypothesis suggests that differences in language emotionalities influence differences among cultures no less than conceptual differences. Conceptual contents of

The Effects of Emotionality of Languages on Evolution of Cultures

Abstract- Abstract-Languages convey emotional as well as conceptual information. Conceptual contents of languages mostly reside in words and their semantic meanings. Emotional contents of languages

Mechanisms of the Brain and Cultures

Mathematical and neural mechanisms of concepts, emotions, instincts, imaginations, intuitions are described. The paper reviews past mathematical difficulties of modeling the mind and a new

Cognitive function, origin, and evolution of musical emotions

Based on recent advancements in cognitive science and mathematical models of the mind, this paper proposes a hypothesis on a fundamental role of music in cognition, and in the evolution of the mind,

Divergent Conceptualization of Embodied Emotions in the English and Chinese Languages

Traditional cognitive linguistic theories acknowledge that human emotions are embodied, yet they fail to distinguish the dimensions that reflect the direction of neural signaling between the brain

The Cognitive Function of Emotions of Spiritually Sublime

Emotions of spiritually sublime are psychological foundations of religions. Whereas science and religion are often considered irreconcilable, this paper demonstrates that psychological foundations of

The Cognitive Function of Emotions of Spiritually Sublime

Emotions of spiritually sublime are psychological foundations of religions. Whereas science and religion are often considered irreconcilable, this paper demonstrates that psychological foundations of

Language and cognition influence on evolution of cultures

A hypothesis that language and cognition are two separate but closely interacting mechanisms, and each of them is identified, explains a number of properties of language and Cognition, which previously seemed mysterious.

Instrumentalizing Cognitive Dissonance Emotions

Many psychologists think that there are few basic emotions, and most emotions are combinations of these few. Here we advance a hypothesis that the number of principally different emotions is near

Emotions of cognitive dissonance

Experimental results indicating that emotions of cognitive dissonance exist are reported, and it is proposed that these emotions are different from basic emotions in principle, and outline future research directions toward showing that their number is large.

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.

Neural dynamics of autistic behaviors: cognitive, emotional, and timing substrates.

The iSTART model shows how autistic behavioral symptoms may arise from prescribed breakdowns in these brain processes, notably a combination of underaroused emotional depression in the amygdala and related affective brain regions, learning of hyperspecific recognition categories in the temporal and prefrontal cortices, and breakdowns of adaptively timed attentional and motor circuits in the hippocampal system and cerebellum.
