Emotional Cognition gives the reader an up to date overview of the current state of emotion and cognition research that is striving for computationally explicit accounts of the relationship between these two domains. Many different areas are covered by some of the leading theorists and researchers in this area and the book crosses a range of domains, from the neurosciences through cognition and formal models to philosophy. Specific chapters consider, amongst other things, the role of emotion in decision-making, the representation and evaluation of emotive events, the relationship of affect on working memory and goal regulation. The emergence of such an integrative, computational, approach in emotion and cognition research is a unique and exciting development, one that will be of interest to established scholars as much as graduate students feeling their way in this area, and applicable to research in applied as well as purely theoretical domains.

“Emotional Cognition is unique in its focus on the intersection of computation, emotion, and cognition. Its editors should be congratulated for assembling a diverse set of scholars who examine the topic from a variety of disciplines and levels of analysis. For readers who have a active research interest in emotion and cognition, there is a good chance that they will discover something in its pages that will give them a new perspective on their chosen research topic. That's really all a scholar can ask for in a book.”
“This is an excellent collection of papers that addresses many of the most important themes in contemporary emotion research.”
