"Happy, sad, angry, glad--why do we cry when we're ecstatic or mad? A fascinating look at the science of emotions. They're a pain, aren't they? If only we were all a little less emotional and a lot more rational, we wouldn't get ourselves into so much trouble. But is that a fair synopsis? Are emotions really some form of cognitive appendix that we'd be better off without? Or do they serve a deeper purpose? For them to take up so much of our brain's precious resources, emotions must have evolved for a reason. And how do they work in the brain? Are they innate, wired in from the word go, allowing a baby to cry with distress mere seconds after exiting the womb? Or are they learned, over time and through our experiences of dealing with others? In The Emotional Brain: Lost and Found in the Science of Emotion, Dean Burnett investigates all these questions--and many more besides. Why can't we stop doomscrolling? Is being hangry a real thing? Why does sad music make us happier? Combining expert analysis, brilliant humour and powerful insights, Dean uncovers how, far from holding us back, our emotions make us who we are."--
