The Cognitive Neuroscience of Mind

This chapter briefly mentions how the book The Integrated Mind came to be published and explores further the regulation of emotional expressions in the brain. The author mentions that The Integrated Mind, which he coauthored with Michael Gazzaniga, basically deals with various studies of split-brain patients that help scientists to understand how the mind and brain normally work. He also discusses Leon Festinger’s theory of cognitive dissonance, and the cognitive theory of Stanley Schachter and Jerome Singer. According to Schachter and Singer, the cognitive interpretation of nonspecific emotional cues can be termed as emotion. They include in their theory that joy and fear had similar physiological states in the brain and body.

Keywords:   Integrated Mind, split-brain patients, cognitive theory, emotion, emotional cues, cognitive interpretation
