Handbook of affective sciences by Richard J Davidson( )

31 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientists have recently made considerable advances in understanding how brain processes shape emotions and are changed by human emotion. There have also been major methodological advances in objectively measuring different parameters of emotion, ranging from expressive behavior to physiology to subjective experience using experience sampling. Drawing on a wide range of research and methods of inquiry--neuroimaging techniques, neuropsychological assessment, clinical research, and laboratory paradigms designed to assess the cognitive and social constituents of emotion--scientists are beginning to understand the many factors that shape emotion and the range of functions that are affected by emotion. As a result, researchers are gaining insight into such compelling questions as show people experience life emotionally, why people respond differently to the same experiences, and what the face can tell us about internal states, how emotion in significant social relationships influences health, and whether there are basic emotions common to all humans. This book brings together scholars in the area of affective science, who lay out, in 59 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 )

27 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,296 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( )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 971 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 )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 858 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( )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anxiety, Depression, and Emotion is part of the Series in Affective Science. Among the subjects it highlights are: the neural substrates of affective style in normal subjects and individuals with anxiety and depression, developmental antecedents of anxiety and mood disorders, the emotional bases of personality disorders, and the contribution of animal research to understanding the neural substrates of anxiety and depression." "This volume will be of broad interest to students of emotion, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists, and scientists who study anxiety and depression.

Consciousness and self-regulation : advances in research by Gary E Schwartz( )

36 editions published between 1976 and 1986 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Preface to the third volume, we described the evolution of this Series and the changes that have taken place in the field since the first volume appeared. The contents of the current volume continue the com mitment to a broadly based perspective on research related to con sciousness and self-regulation which was embodied in the previous three volumes. Chapters are included which consider the role of con sciousness in cognitive theory and clinical phenomena. Several of the contributions to this volume are concerned with the nature of self-reg ulation and the role of conscious processing in the mediation of self regulated behavior. Most of the authors adopt a psychobiological ap proach to their subject matter. Our selection of contributors with a bias toward this approach reflects our own views that the psychobiological approach is a very fruitful one and that the "architecture" of the nervous system places important constraints on the types of theories that are possible in this emerging area. While the subject matter of the chapters in this volume is quite diverse, the contributions are united by their emphasis on the impor tance of consciousness and/or self-regulation in the understanding of behavior and experience. We have selected what we believe is repre sentative of the best theory and research in the diverse areas which bear on the theme of this series, maintaining a balance between basic and clinical research

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
