About this book

As the 66th volume in the prestigious Nebraska Series on Motivation, this book focuses on understanding emotion and motivation as two factors that not only influence social and cognitive processes, but also shape the way we navigate our social world. Research on emotion has increased significantly over the past two decades, pulling from scholarship in psychology, neuroscience, medicine, political science, sociology, and even computer science. This volume is informed by the growing momentum in the resulting interdisciplinary field of affective science, and examines the role of emotion and motivation in our perceptions, decision-making, and social interactions, and attempts to understand the neurobiological mechanisms that support these processes across the lifespan in both healthy and clinical populations.

Included among the chapters:

  • Emotion concept development from childhood to adulthood
  • Evolving psychological and neural models for the regulation of emotion
  • Pathways to motivational impairments in psychopathology
  • A valuation systems perspective on motivation
  • Reproducible, generalizable brain models of affective processes

Emotion in the Mind and Body is a comprehensive and compelling rendering of the current state of the interdisciplinary field of affective science, and will be of interest to researchers and students working in psychology and neuroscience, as well as medicine, political science, and sociology.

About the editors

Maital Neta is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, Associate Director of the Center for Brain, Behavior, and Biology and Director of the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab. Dr. Neta received her Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from Dartmouth College in 2010, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine before joining the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2014. Her work examines psychophysiological and neural responses to emotional ambiguity across the lifespan. Specifically, this research is directed at understanding individual differences in valence bias, or the tendency to interpret ambiguous images as having a positive or negative emotional meaning. She has been awarded numerous awards, including the Harold and Esther Edgerton Junior Faculty Award, serves on the Executive Committee for the Society for Affective Science, and on the editorial boards for Emotion and Social, Cognitive, and Affective Neuroscience.

Ingrid J. Haas is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science, Resident Faculty in the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior, and Director of the Political Attitudes and Cognition Lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She also has a courtesy appointment in the Department of Psychology. Dr. Haas received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from The Ohio State University and joined the UNL faculty in 2012. She conducts interdisciplinary research on political psychology, attitudes, and social cognition, using research methods from social psychology, political science, and cognitive neuroscience.
