Does the brain creates your emotions? Picking one of the many currently generated guesses

Posted on: February 25, 2018

Can you look at someone’s face and know what they’re feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way?

What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are.

She shares the results of her exhaustive research — and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.

This talk was presented at a TED Institute event given in partnership with IBM. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page. Read more about the TED Institute.

Lisa Feldman Barrett · Neuro-scientist, psychologist, author. PhD is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with positions in psychiatry and radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
