about this item
This textbook is designed for upper-level undergraduate courses on affective science. The lively, carefully organized, and integrative chapters review cutting-edge empirical research on emotion at every level of analysis. These include the neural bases of emotions, complex emotions such as self-conscious emotions and happiness, the relations between emotion and cognitive processes, emotion regulation, and an examination of social levels of analysis including emotions in groups, gender and emotion, and universals and cultural differences.
Thoroughly revised, and with greater inclusion of research findings from neuroscience throughout, this 2nd edition also includes highly effective learning devices, such as ‘Development Detail’ boxes in every chapter that zoom in on the central topic as it relates to infancy or aging; bolded key terms; ‘Learning Links’ that send students to current on-line supplemental materials; and many tables, figures and illustrations that make chapter topics come alive and support understanding and the retention of ideas and scientific findings.
