Come lovely and soothing death : the right to die movement in the United States by Elaine Fox( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite increasing media visibility and growing public support for euthanasia in the United States, the right to die movement has not, until now, received systematic sociological attention. In Come Lovely and Soothing Death, Fox, Kamakahi, and Capek trace the emergence from the 1930s, the evolution, and the contemporary activities of the movement, and explore the sociocultural circumstances that produce scenarios where individuals face criminal sanctions for engaging in active euthanasia ("assisted suicide")." "Come Lovely and Soothing Death is a valuable resource for scholars and students of sociology and social policy, and for anyone interested in the right to die, physician assisted suicide, or social movements."--Jacket
Emotion science : cognitive and neuroscientific approaches to understanding human emotions by Elaine Fox( Book )

(Publisher-supplied data) Emotions and affective processes are fundamentally important to our lives. They regulate our relationships and social interactions, they help us communicate with one another, and almost certainly help us maintain good health and prevent the onset and development of disease. The study of emotion has a long history in philosophy and psychology. However, until recently, emotion research has been a marginal activity in psychological science. In the behaviorist era, which dominated much of the twentieth century, emotion was often deemed unworthy of serious research because the field lacked objective ways to measure emotions and their associated feelings without resorting to introspection by subjects, which is, by definition, non-behavioral. In addition, since Plato, it is easy to discern a quiet bias in the sciences against emotions or "passions," which were often posited as inferior to the higher gifts of Reason and unworthy of serious research. This view, however, has changed radically in the past few years. With the development of sophisticated imaging tools like fMRI, researchers have uncovered the centrality of emotion to our thinking and reasoning and remembering, and evidence has demonstrated that it may be misleading to posit two separate phenomena altogether, i.e., "cognition" and "emotion." These traditional categories have been shown to be highly interdependent processes that interact with each other in a dynamic way. Our memories of the past; our decisions and plans for the future; what we attend to on a moment-to-moment basis; what we think about as we daydream: all of those cognitive operations are coloured by emotions, just as emotions themselves are influenced by cognitive processes. Therefore, in order to gain a more complete understanding of the richness of our mental life we need to more fully understand the role of emotions and how these processes interact with the traditionally defined "cognitive" processes. The Science of Emotion is the first textbook to integrate psychology and neuroscientific evidence to develop a modern understanding of emotion and the nature of the links between processes that have traditionally been considered "cognitive" and those that have traditionally been considered "emotional." While these two constructs have often been treated as separate, residing in two separate areas of the brain-the neo-cortex and the limbic system, respectively, The Science of Emotion uses the latest research to show how the two phenomena are intertwined and interdependent both at neural and psychological levels. The book contains at least one focus box per chapter that will either take an interesting question (e.g., Do we run because we are afraid, or afraid because we run?) or a more empirically-based question from everyday life (e.g., Are we more likely to remember emotional events?). There is also a further material website with links and more detailed descriptions of key experiments
Rainy brain, sunny brain : how to retrain your brain to overcome pessimism and achieve a more positive outlook by Elaine Fox( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are you optimistic or pessimistic? Glass half-full or half-empty? Do you look on the bright side or turn towards the dark? These are easy questions for most of us to answer, because our personality types are hard-wired into our brains. As pioneering psychologist and neuroscientist Elaine Fox has discovered, our outlook on life reflects our primal inclination to seek pleasure or avoid danger--inclinations that, in many people, are healthily balanced

Rainy brain, sunny brain : the new science of fear and optimism by Elaine Fox( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are some people driven to dangerous risks, while others shun danger' Why do some people seem to be born optimists, while others are more prone to worry and pessimism' Drawing on her own groundbreaking research and the research of many other scientists from around the world, Elaine Fox helps answer why. With a compelling mix of science and anecdotes, Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain addresses -Why optimism is more difficult than pessimism -How innocent stimuli can become triggers for terror -The emergency brain: how our ancient neural circuits take over our thoughts and memories -New techniques for counteracting fear and anxiety disorders -Dangerous minds: the psychology of risk Perhaps most important, Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain shows how malleable our minds really are. There is increasing evidence that we can learn to change our brain states. It is possible for people trapped in pessimistic and negative mindsets to take their more "rainy" brain to a sunnier one with real change that's reflected at the level of neurons within their brains
