The emotional brain – Joseph LeDoux

Why is it so easy for passions to invade our thoughts, but so hard to gain conscious control over our emotions? Why are emotional memories sometimes so immediate and compelling, and other times repressed and only later recovered (or are they)? What goes wrong with emotion in emotional disorders? Joseph LeDoux weaves a stroy about emotion, consciousness, and the brain that guides us through these conundrums and makes sense of them… LeDoux succeeds in unravelling the mysteries of the emotional brain. With clarity and convincing logic. The emotional brain presents a new view of emotion that is derived in large part from the author’s own ground-breaking research… LeDoux shows how the study of the brain leaves our understanding of emotion richer than it was before. In clear, simple conversations with the reader, Joseph LeDoux guides even beginners along a constantly alluring pathway through some very tricky biology and psychology… a very current understanding of what we think we know about how our brains use, generate, and react to emotion.
