Lateralization of Emotional or Behavioral Responses in Intact and Hemisphere-Damaged Humans and Rats

  • Godfrey D. Pearlson
  • Robert G. Robinson


Current literature on the relationship of brain lateralization to emotion deals with such diverse topics as the recognition of facial expressions, neuropsychological variables in manic-depressive illness, animal evidence of lateralization, and changes in EEG patterns during human orgasm. These diverse phenomena are frequently treated as though they were different manifestations of some unitary phenomenon—“emotion” or “affectivity.” In this chapter we shall propose that these diverse topics can best be integrated by seeing the expression of emotion as a multicomponent process with different experiments testing various parts of this process.
