Reviews

"The sparsity of clear or robust answers spurred neuroscientists Ralph Adolphs and David Anderson to frame an integrated science of emotion. The result is scholarly, lucid and pertinent to both neurobiology and psychology."---Barb Kiser, Nature
"This is an important, agenda-setting and clearly written book that should now be an essential starting point for the science of emotions."---Shane O'Mara, Times Higher Education
"There is a tight logic running throughout The Neuroscience of Emotion that integrates theories of emotions, recent studies, and commonsense analogies. . . . Adolphs and Anderson openly acknowledge that they do not provide a comprehensive theory of emotion. Indeed, despite the existence of substantial research on the subject, we are left with the impression that we actually know remarkably little about emotions at present. But their enthusiasm for the topic is genuine and makes The Neuroscience of Emotion compelling and engaging."---Elizabeth Bauer, Science
"Their analysis is authoritative and unsurpassed in its intricate examination of the field. It is also fluent, but don't expect a frolic: this is a commanding textbook for scientists and students."---Helen Thomson, New Scientist
