Circuits of Emotion in the Primate Brain
This chapter reviews the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive processes including emotion, reward, memory, social behavior, numerosity, and executive control. The first section identifies the main structures that comprise the emotional circuits of the primate brain. The second section describes what is known about the neural basis of emotional processes, from the association of stimuli to positive or negative outcomes, to the interplay between the perception and expression of social signals. Reflecting the biases in the literature, the descriptions will emphasize the macaque genus and the function of the amygdala, the most highly connected component of the emotional brain.
