Psychological and Biological Approaches to Emotion

By Nancy L. Stein; Bennett Leventhal et al. | Go to book overview

our understanding the role of the cortex in emotional behavior. For example, we have found that the differences between frontal and temporal lobe contributions to emotional behavior are probably larger than those between the hemispheres. Similarly, other biological factors such as handedness and sex, which are known to influence cortical organization, will have to be considered in the future as will the role of experience, which has been shown to alter cerebral organization in laboratory animals. The task will be formidable, but we will not have a complete understanding of the nature of human emotion until we can better understand the requisite neural hardware that allows the expression of our emotional life.
