Neuroscience findings are consistent with appraisal theories of emotion; but does the brain “respect” constructionism?
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (3):163-164 (2012)
AbstractI reject Lindquist et al.'s implicit claim that all emotion theories other than constructionist ones subscribe to a approach. The neural mechanisms underlying relevance detection, reward, attention, conceptualization, or language use are consistent with many theories of emotion, in particular componential appraisal theories. I also question the authors' claim that the meta-analysis they report provides support for the specific assumptions of constructionist theories
