  1. The Temporal Dynamic of Emotional Emergence.Thomas Desmidt, Maël Lemoine, Catherine Belzung & Natalie Depraz - 2014 - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 13 (4):557-578.
    Following the neurophenomenological approach, we propose a model of emotional emergence that identifies the experimental structures of time involved in emotional experience and their plausible components in terms of cognition, physiology, and neuroscience. We argue that surprise, as a lived experience, and its physiological correlates of the startle reflex and cardiac defense are the core of the dynamic, and that the heart system sets temporally in motion the dynamic of emotional emergence. Finally, in reference to Craig’s model of emotion, we (...)

    Latent Variables and the Network Perspective.Catherine Belzung, Etienne Billette De Villemeur, Mael Lemoine & Vincent Camus - 2010 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (2-3):150-1.
    We discuss the latent variables construct, particularly in regard to the following: that latent variables are considered as the sole explanatory factor of a disorder; that pragmatic concerns are ignored; and that the relationship of these variables to biological markers is not addressed. Further, we comment on the relationship between bridge symptoms and causality, and discuss the proposal in relationship to other constructs (endophenotypes, connectionist-inspired networks).

  3. Validation of the French Version of the Positivity Scale.Alexis Vancappel, Robert Courtois, Marta Siragusa, Coraline Hingray, Christian Réveillère, Gianvittorio Caprara, Catherine Belzung & Wissam El-Hage - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    BackgroundThe purpose of this study is to assess the psychometric properties of the French version of the Positivity scale, a self-report measure of positivity, which is the tendency to view and address life and experience with a positive outlook. Positivity is seen as a latent factor underlying multiple cognitive concepts such as self-esteem, life satisfaction, and optimism.MethodsWe recruited 666 volunteers. They completed the P scale online, as well as self-report measures of psychological well-being, self-esteem, satisfaction with life, general health, and (...)

    Models of Complexity: The Example of Emotions.Catherine Belzung & Catherine Chevalley - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1053-1054.
    Using the example of the difficulties which emerge when trying to model complex behaviors – such as emotional expression – that result from stochastic interactions between different components, we argue that biorobotics may well describe one possible evolution of certain features of a biological system, but cannot pretend to be a simulation of the whole behavior of the system.

    Empathy.Catherine Belzung - 2014 - Journal for Perspectives of Economic Political and Social Integration 19 (1-2):177-191.
    When we see a child crying, the urge to help him and to comfort him comes to us spontaneously. We understand what he is experiencing, and feel in us something of his sadness, his distress: this is what we call empathy. This sense of the other is the fruit of our evolutionary history and is hardwired in our biology. Empathy has interested a lot of thinkers and in particular the Scottish philosophers of the Age of the Enlightenment such as Adam (...)
