≪Organizer Abstract≫
We have Japanese Society for Research on Emotion, with over 400 members who are working on emotion studies, in divergent research areas such as neuroscience, experimental psychology, social, applied, and clinical psychology, cognitive science, and humanities such as philosophy and literatures. This symposium aims to introduce recent theoretical and empirical findings of psychological studies on emotions which have been conducted in Japan, and additionally to discuss generality and cultural-specificity of such findings. Topics presented in this symposium will include; 1) neural mechanisms of affective decision-making, 2) roles of interoception in experiences of emotions, 3) displays and perception of facial expressions in cultural contexts, and 4) roles of languages in generation and alteration of emotions.
