About this Course

About the Course

In this course, Dr Dean Burnett (Cardiff University) explores the links between cognition and emotions. In the first lecture, we think about some modern evidence which has presented the interactions between cognition and emotions. In the second lecture, we think about the functions that emotions serve. Next, we think about the role of emotions in memory, including how it influences the storing and retrieval of memories. In the fourth and final lecture, we think about how emotions can influence both day-to-day and more important decision making. Photo by Tengyart on Unsplash
