We can’t just look at what we think about something and assume it’s true, researchers have concluded.
We need to ask questions like “what makes people happy, sad, sadistic or bored?” and “what’s important to us?” to see if the answers are true.
In the process, we may discover that the answers don’t tell us everything, and that there are some things that we simply don’t know.
In this case, “emotion” is the key word, said Daniel J. Batson, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Toronto who specializes in human behavior and emotion.
“We don’t really understand emotion,” Batson said.
“There are just so many different kinds of emotions, and so many distinct ways of expressing them.
So I think what we’re trying to do here is try to sort out the different kinds.”
In other words, we can’t know all the emotions people have in the world, and we don’t understand what they’re really like.
That’s where emotion research comes in.
It’s a field where emotions and psychology can be compared to two different fields: cognitive science and neuroscience.
Cognitive science explores the brain’s processes by looking at the way the brain processes information.
Neuroscience focuses on the biological basis of the brain and how it works.
The two fields are often considered opposites, but the two fields share a common interest: understanding what emotions are, and what they mean.
The idea is that the more we understand the brain, the more useful our understanding of emotion will be, said Batson.
The theory is that if we understand how the brain works, we’ll be able to understand how people experience emotions and how they respond to them.
Bessler and his colleagues are interested in the brain as an instrument to study emotions.
“The more we know about how the body and mind work, the better we can understand the human mind,” he said.
And emotion is just one of many types of information the brain can process, said Dr. Katherine O’Neil, an assistant professor of psychology at the College of William and Mary.
For example, the brain stores information about what’s important, and how we feel about it.
So you might get an idea of what someone’s feeling about their body when they go to a spa or they eat something healthy, she said.
But if you have a medical condition like Parkinson’s or diabetes, the data you get might not be so clear.
So emotion is one of the ways we can use the brain to understand emotion, she explained.
Biotemporal research Batson and O’Neill are two of the leading researchers in emotion research.
Bets have been put on cognitive psychology and neuroscience to figure out how people perceive and process emotion.
Cognitive psychologists analyze people’s brain activity when they’re doing something and how that changes over time.
Neuroscientists study how the activity changes as we learn about our emotions.
They look at how the data changes over the course of a lifetime, Batson noted.
Bostrom and colleagues are looking at how emotion can change over time in people with bipolar disorder, a condition that can cause depression.
Biesecker and his team are studying how emotion affects people’s health.
Bias is another topic that Batson has researched.
For instance, Biessecker and Batson’s research shows that people with anxiety can feel sad more than people without the condition, while Biesceker’s research indicates that people who are depressed have a more negative affect than people who do not have depression.
“It’s really an interesting field, but it’s a little bit more specialized than just cognitive psychology,” Bitz said.
The research Bitz is interested in is the question of whether or not we have a universal understanding of human emotion, Bessler said.
Bats is a pioneer in this area, and Bitz and his co-author have published some of the first research that shows how emotion is not universal.
Bitz, Bostom and Oosten’s work is the basis for the new book, Emotion: An Introduction to the Psychology of Emotions, published in 2016 by Oxford University Press.
“I think emotion is very important, but I think it’s an underappreciated part of psychology,” said Bitz.
“People don’t fully understand how we think and feel, because we’re very shy and we’re not really open to having those conversations.”
Bitz says that he and his students were inspired to write the book after being told by some of his students that they could have a better understanding of how people feel by studying emotion.
And that’s what Bitz hopes his students will learn from the book.
“What you learn is how emotions and emotions are related to the world around you, and if they’re related to what you think or feel, that gives you an insight into how we might think and behave differently,” Biesace said.
