Handbook of affective sciences by Richard J Davidson( )

41 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 2,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook brings together, for the first time, the various strands of inquiry and latest research in the scientific study of the relationship between the mechanisms of the brain and the psychology of mind. In recent years, scientists have made considerable advances in understanding how brain processes shape emotions and are changed by human emotion. Drawing on a wide range of neuroimaging techniques, neuropsychological assessment, and clinical research, scientists are beginning to understand the biological mechanisms for emotions. As a result, researchers are gaining insight into such compelling questions as: How do people experience life emotionally? Why do people respond so differently to the same experiences? What can the face tell us about internal states? How does emotion in significant social relationships influence health? Are there basic emotions common to all humans? This volume brings together the most eminent scholars in the field to present, in fifty-nine original chapters, the latest research and theories in the field

The emotional life of your brain : how its unique patterns affect the way you think, feel, and live--and how you can change them by Richard J Davidson( Book )

29 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author, a pioneer in brain research offers an entirely new model of our emotions, their origins, their power, and their malleability. For more than thirty years, the author has been at the forefront of brain research. Now he gives us an entirely new model for understanding our emotions, as well as practical strategies we can use to change them. He has discovered that personality is composed of six basic emotional "styles," including resilience, self-awareness, and attention. Our emotional fingerprint results from where on the continuum of each style we fall. He explains the brain chemistry that underlies each style in order to give us a new model of the emotional brain, one that will even go so far as to affect the way we treat conditions like autism and depression. And, finally, he provides strategies we can use to change our own brains and emotions if that is what we want to do. By giving us a new and useful way to look at ourselves, we can develop a sense of well-being, and live more meaningful lives
Visions of compassion : Western scientists and Tibetan Buddhists examine human nature by Richard J Davidson( )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publisher-supplied data) This book examines how Western behavioral science--which has generally focused on negative aspects of human nature--holds up to cross-cultural scrutiny, in particular the Tibetan Buddhist celebration of the human potential for altruism, empathy, and compassion. Resulting from a meeting between the Dalai Lama, leading Western scholars, and a group of Tibetan monks, this volume includes excerpts from these extraordinary dialogues as well as engaging essays exploring points of difference and overlap between the two perspectives

The nature of emotion : fundamental questions by Paul Ekman( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The editors of this unique volume have selected 24 leading emotion theorists and asked them to address 12 fundamental questions about the subject of emotion. For example; Are there basic emotions? How do you distinguish emotions from moods, temperament, and emotional traits? Can we control our emotions? Can emotions be non-conscious? What is the relation between emotion and memory? What develops in emotional development? Each chapter addresses a different one of these fundamental questions about emotion, with often divergent answers from several of leading researchers represented here : James Averill, Gordon Bower, Linda Camras, Lee Clark, Gerald Clore, Richard Davidson, Judy Dunn, Paul Ekman, Phoebe Ellsworth, Nico Frijda, Hill Goldsmith, Jeffrey Gray, Carroll Izard, Jerome Kaga, Richard Lazarus, Joseph Le Doux, Robert Levenson, Jaak Panksepp, Mary Rothbart, Klaus Shere, Richard Shweder, David Watson, and Robert Zajonc. At the end of each chapter, the editors--Ekman and Davidson--highlight the areas of agreement and disagreement about each of the 12 questions about emotion. In the final chapter, Affective Science : A Research Agenda, the editors describe the research they believe would help answer each of the questions. Not a textbook offering a single viewpoint, The Nature of Emotion, uniquely reveals the central issues in emotion research and theory in the words of many of the leading scientists working in the field today. It is ideal for students, researchers, and clinicians interested in emotion
Anxiety, depression, and emotion by Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion( )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anxiety, Depression, and Emotion is part of the Series in Affective Science.

"This volume will be of broad interest to students of emotion, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists, and scientists who study anxiety and depression.

As mindfulness, TM, and other brands of meditation sweep through businesses, schools and clinics, Altered Traits brings a startling new perspective to an understanding of our relationship to our brain, our personal traits, and even our genome - showing that smart practice can alter these for the better. Drawing on a one-of-a-kind data pool - brain studies of world-class meditators - Goleman and Davidson sweep away common misconceptions and neuromythology to open reader's eyes to the ways data has been distorted to sell mind training methods. Simultaneously, they share for the first time remarkable findings that show potential for our cultivation of highly positive, lasting qualities, such as selflessness, equanimity, love and compassion, through meditation. Altered Traits shifts the conversation of precisely how and when mind training benefits us, revealing reveal the power of intentional, sustained mental exercise to redesign neural circuitry."--

Consciousness, the brain, states of awareness, and alternate realities( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in Undetermined and English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neuropsychological perspectives on affective and anxiety disorders( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ironically, in spite of the label "affective disorders", research on affective disorders has little to say about just what is disordered about emotion in these illnesses. One major purpose of this Special Issue is to begin to raise this question as a legitimate domain of inquiry in studies of emotion and psychopathology. A goal of this Special issue is to foster increased integration between research on the neural mechanisms underlying normal emotion and disordered emotion in depression and anxiety-related illnesses. A central concept that figures prominently in this collection of articles is the importance of individual differences in different components of affective processes. Brain circuitry that underlies such differences in affective style offers great promise in providing a biologically plausible way of parsing the affect domain and developing a theoretically compelling taxonomy of mechanisms that give rise to vulnerability to affective and anxiety disorders."--Jacket
