    The Aesthetic Preference for Nature Sounds Depends on Sound Object Recognition.Stephen C. Van Hedger, Howard C. Nusbaum, Shannon L. M. Heald, Alex Huang, Hiroki P. Kotabe & Marc G. Berman - 2019 - Cognitive Science 43 (5):e12734.
    People across the world seek out beautiful sounds in nature, such as a babbling brook or a nightingale song, for positive human experiences. However, it is unclear whether this positive aesthetic response is driven by a preference for the perceptual features typical of nature sounds versus a higher‐order association of nature with beauty. To test these hypotheses, participants provided aesthetic judgments for nature and urban soundscapes that varied on ease of recognition. Results demonstrated that the aesthetic preference for nature soundscapes (...)

    How Anticipated Emotions Guide Self-Control Judgments.Hiroki P. Kotabe, Francesca Righetti & Wilhelm Hofmann - 2019 - Frontiers in Psychology 10.
    When considering whether to enact or not to enact a tempting option, people often anticipate how their choices will make them feel, typically resulting in a “mixed bag” of conflicting emotions. Building on earlier work, we propose an integrative theoretical model of this judgment process and empirically test its main propositions using a novel procedure to capture and integrate both the intensity and duration of anticipated emotions. We identify and theoretically integrate four highly relevant key emotions, pleasure, frustration, guilt, and (...)
