Lisa Feldman Barrett discusses her book “How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain.”
Psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett’s new theory of emotion is driving a deeper understanding of the mind and brain and what it means to be human. Her research overturns the widely held belief that emotions are housed in different parts of the brain and are universally expressed and recognized. Instead, emotion is constructed in the moment by core systems interacting across the whole brain, aided by a lifetime of learning.
How Emotions Are Made reveals the latest research and intriguing practical applications of the new science of emotion, mind, and brain.
