Subject and Scope:
This home page is a "Theme-page" serving as a repository of
information about emotion research. The goal of this site is to function
as a web-space for the exploration of emotion research. It is intended
as a tool for visitors interested in the scientific study of emotion and
is limited to experimental and clinical psychology, neuroscience and computational
The page contains brief tutorial introductions to the history of theories
of emotions and to the major bibliographical references in each the above
mentioned fields of study. The tutorial text includes numerous links to
a glossary and a bibliography.
The page also contains links to relevant on-line resources (e.g., journals,
conference announcements) and links to other sites relevant to emotion
research, including individual researchers' web pages and research groups
Interactivity and Feedback:
The current format represents an initial framework/structure and we
view this site as an evolving project, currently under construction and
subject to modifications based on feedback from the visitors. We welcome
comments, contributions, corrections, and suggestions from visitors. Automatic
e-mail links are provided at each page to facilitate the feedback process.
Contributions will be acknowledged.
We view this site as an experiment in web-facilitated scientific interchange.
The WWW provides a unique environment capable of significantly changing
the nature of scientific inquiry. By facilitating fast interchange and
easy links among related disciplines, we hope that such a page can provide
a medium for interdisciplinary communication which has often been difficult
in the existing format of scientific exchange.
