Neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett completely rejects the theory of emotion that suggests our reactions to what happens around us are hardwired and universal. In How Emotions Are Made, Dr. Barrett offers groundbreaking new research that proves emotion is constructed by our brains and our bodies as we go along. Dr. Barrett provocatively contradicts a century of scientific thought when she argues that emotions are not cross-culturally universal, fear does not live in the amygdala, etc.
Lisa Feldman Barrett, PhD, is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Psychiatry and Radiology. She received a NIH Director’s Pioneer Award for her research on emotion in the brain, and the 2018 APS Mentor Award For Lifetime Achievement.
