Survival Circuits In Animal Brains: What Can They Tell Us About Human Emotion?

A new theory from LeDoux, who wrote a favorite book of mine, “The Emotional Brain.” The new theory is called ”the survival circuit concept.”

Quote from LeDoux:

“The survival circuit concept integrates ideas about emotion, motivation, reinforcement, and arousal in the effort to understand how organisms survive and thrive by detecting and responding to challenges and opportunities in daily life.”

Good stuff. Looking forward to learning more.
