By Frederic Perez-Alvarez, Carme Timoneda-Gallart

The elemental objective of this booklet is to speak a brand new figuring out of human behaviour via taking into consideration how either cognition and emotion exist at a neurological point. Neurological proof can now clarify how cognition and emotion paintings interactively. which means at any time when the mind is mentally working, either cognition and emotion are operating. the ultimate final result of this inner task is/may be an exterior behaviour. during this feel, talking, studying, studying, consuming, melancholy, anxiousness, etc are all behaviours produced through primary neurological mechanisms we now have been conscious of because the Nineteen Nineties. The neurological facts is predicated on numerous equipment of analysis, one instance is the most recent sensible magnetic resonance in people. This ebook offers an evidence of standard functionality to be via an evidence of dysfunctional behaviour.

1995]. This evidence helps us to explain the difficulty in solving some dysfunctional behaviors (resistance). Also, we know that the inferior-medial-ventral prefrontal cortex plays a substantial role for the extinction of emotional learning [LeDoux 1996, 2000]. The experimental lesion of this prefrontal cortex in rats made these animals keep responding to a fear conditioned stimulus while other rats with the whole prefrontal extinguished the response [Morgan et al. 1993]. This evidence provides substantial knowledge on the role of the medial-ventral prefrontal in fearful feeling processing in accordance with the evidence from studies of humans with prefrontal lesions.

We can similarly apply this discourse by substituting the "m"-"n" discriminating tasks for any other one including any dysfunctional behavior. More and more neurological evidence points to the fact that the painful-sensitivity feeling processing network count on neurons processing and codifying sensitivity, but not cognitive informative data, even for the prefrontal, the cognitive cerebral lobe par excellence. , 1984, 1986, 1990; LeDoux, 1995, 1996, 2000]. Having said that, we must clarify that any person, either consciously or unconsciously experiencing painful feeling, is processing two kinds of bad feeling.

When conscious, the protective-defensive behavior becomes painful, anxious, insecure, angry, frustrated, discouraged, afraid or many other applicable terms, all of them stress-related ailments, meaning bad feeling. Under these circumstances, it is not strange that most of our arguments with one another really come down to, who is right? What a useless way to hurt each other's feeling! At last, feeling processing rules cognitive processing. For instance, a child has difficulties with discriminating "m" from "n".
