This course adresses the interaction of human emotion and cognition. The first five lectures provide an overview of the basic streams in investigating and theorizing about emotions and affective processing, including evolutionary, anthropological, sociological, information-processing, and neurophysiological approaches. The remaining lectures provide examples for the application of emotion theories to issues in clinical, developmental, social and health psychology.

The student has gained a broad overview of classical and modern theories on emotion, and a deeper insight into how theoretical concepts and hypotheses in this area can be applied to empirical phenomena and practical problems.
