  1. 1. Emotion matters : Emotion management in Swedish Peace Support Operations

    Author : Louise Weibull; Jan Karlsson; Eva Haldén; Lars Dahlgren; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Peace Support Operations; emotion management; low-intensity conflict areas; Sweden; Working Life Science; Arbetsvetenskap; Statsvetenskap med inriktning mot strategi och säkerhetspolitik; Statsvetenskap med inriktning mot strategi och säkerhetspolitik;

    Abstract : The thesis makes an overall contribution to the qualitative research on soldiers’ experiences from service primarily in low-intensity mission areas, this operational environment being placed within a framework of emotion sociology. The central argument put forward states that even on this type of mission the emotional demands are considerable, and that the need for emotional management in Peace Support Operations (PSO) should therefore generally follow other demarcations than the formal military divisions of high and low intensity conflicts respectively.

  2. 2. Vocal Expression of Emotion : Discrete-emotions and Dimensional Accounts

    Author : Petri Laukka; Patrik N. Juslin; Erik Börjesson; Roddy Cowie; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Psychology; speech; emotion; vocal expression; emotion dimensions; acoustic cues; categorical perception; nonverbal communication; speech synthesis; cross-cultural communication; decoding accuracy; emotion intensity; meta-analysis; discrete emotions; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : This thesis investigated whether vocal emotion expressions are conveyed as discrete emotions or as continuous dimensions. Study I consisted of a meta-analysis of decoding accuracy of discrete emotions (anger, fear, happiness, love-tenderness, sadness) within and across cultures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Embodied cognition and emotion in multisensory media

    Author : Ana Tajadura; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : media; emotion; psychoacoustics; auditory-induced emotions; embodied emotion; presence.; self-representation; embodiment; multisensory perception;

    Abstract : Emotions underlie most events in our everyday life perception. They prepare ourselves for an optimum response to these events, either showing attraction or rejection to them. Likewise, media has the power to evoke in us similar affective processes as the ones created by real situations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Disturbed sleep and emotion : a developmental perspective

    Abstract : A major challenge in the field of neuroscience is to link behavior with specific neuronal circuitries and cellular events. One way of facing this challenge is to identify unique cellular markers and thus have the ability to, through various mouse genetics tools, mimic, manipulate and control various aspects of neuronal activity to decipher their correlation to behavior.
