About the Author

Jorge Armony holds the Canada Research Chair in Affective Neuroscience in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University. He is also a researcher at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and a member of the International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research. Dr Armony's research focuses on the neural mechanisms of emotional processing across modalities, including the interactions of these mechanisms with other cognitive functions in healthy individuals as well as in patients suffering from psychiatric and neurological disorders. Patrik Vuilleumier is a professor at the University of Geneva Medical School, where he leads the Laboratory for Neurology and Imaging of Cognition and directs the Geneva Neuroscience Center. Dr Vuilleumier was part of the interdisciplinary team that helped to shape the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research in Affective Sciences. Dr Vuilleumier's research focuses on the influence of emotion processing on perception, attention and action, using functional neuroimaging techniques and neuropsychological studies of brain-damaged patients.


"This edited volume provides a welcome up-to-date review of current Literature in the neuroscience of emotion.... Twenty eight-chapters authored by established experts provide coverage that is both broad and deep.... Chapters are well organized into sections that help the reader find relevant information quickly.... The focus on human emotion, rather than on nonhuman models of affect, gives the book a necessary focus while still covering plenty of ground. True to the field, the chapters represent findings from a wide range of methodological techniques.... It can also serve as a useful companion to the other valuable handbooks about emotion that are not as neuroscience oriented.... Highly recommended..." --R. Compton, Haverford College, CHOICE
