Preview — Affective Neuroscience by Jaak Panksepp. Some investigators have argued that emotions, especially animal emotions, are illusory concepts outside the realm of scientific inquiry. However, with advances in neurobiology and neuroscience, researchers are demonstrating that panisepp position is wrong as they move closer to a lasting understanding of the biology and psychology of emotion.
In Affective Neuroscience, Jaak Pa Some investigators have argued that emotions, especially animal emotions, are illusory concepts outside the realm of scientific inquiry.
In Affective Neuroscience, Jaak Panksepp provides the most up-to-date information about the afcective systems acfective organize the fundamental emotional tendencies of all mammals. Presenting complex material in a readable manner, the book offers a comprehensive summary of the fundamental neural sources of human and animal feelings, as well as a conceptual framework for studying emotional systems of the brain.
Panksepp approaches emotions from the perspective of basic emotion theory but does not fail to address the complex issues raised by constructionist approaches. These issues include relations to human consciousness and the psychiatric implications of this knowledge. The book includes chapters on sleep and arousal, pleasure and fear systems, the sources of rage and anger, and the neural control of sexuality, as well as the more subtle emotions related to maternal care, social loss, and playfulness.
Representing a synthetic integration of vast amounts of neurobehavioral knowledge, including relevant neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neurochemistry, this book will be one of the most important contributions pankeepp understanding the biology of emotions since Darwins The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.

You will need a degree in neuroscience or neurosciende least something close like affectvie science or psychology to understand this book.
It could easily be used as a textbook for a graduate-level course. But if you can slog through the dense information, the complex jargon, the advanced scientific concepts, you will learn more about consciousness and emotion than you probably knew that our science understood.
You will better understand why it is that we have emotions Incredibly dense with information. You will better understand why it is that we have emotions at all, and you will at least begin to grasp what it is that emotions are made ofthough Panksepp admits that there are deep and neudoscience unsolved problems here.
It’s a brilliant book, and it will be remembered in the annals of science for a long time. But I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t already have a detailed understanding of the field; it will just be confusing and overwhelming to you.
May 24, Dav rated it really liked it. As a non-neuroscientist lacking any formal academic background in chemistry or biology, this was a difficult book due to the technical depth involved. I owe my persistence to the compelling nature of the subject matter and the warm, expert and comprehensive delivery of Dr Panksepp.
The book starts with the mo As a non-neuroscientist lacking any formal academic background in jaqk or biology, this was a difficult book due to the technical depth involved. The book starts with the most thorough explanation of the history and development of neuroscience I’ve been exposed to.
It covered issues of cellular biology, the anatomical layout of the brain and it’s evolutionary implicationsand the intricacies of the electrical and chemical systems involved.
The experimental techniques commonly used are also explained in enough detail to understand why their results are meaningful. Sffective concept is covered in detail from anatomical considerations to chemical and neuronal circuit dynamics, including details on the history of scientific thought in each area and the experiments that have shed new light. This covers the final two thirds of the book.
Along the way many fascinating insights and hypotheses are shared. One notable part of the text is an early addressing of the role of animals in neuroscience experiments.
Honestly I forget the details now, but it painted a picture of how we must balance the suffering induced in animals with the benefits gained both for human suffering and perhaps an eventual scientific acknowledgement of animal emotions. Some of the experiments described later in the text were pretty rough to imagine, such as rat trials in REM sleep experiments and others involving cats.
It is clear from Panksepp’s commentary in this introduction and throughout the text that he represents the compassionate scientist who foresees a time when our understanding of the true nature of emotions gives basis to improved treatment of other species. Affective Neuroscience wraps a lot of that knowledge up into a fairly comprehensive overview with plenty of new hypotheses and pointers for future research. Jul 08, Eric Sexton rated it really liked it. The first third of the book should be primarily review for anyone familiar with the basics of neuroanatomy and neuroscience in general.
The second and third sections are the interesting parts, particularly the last third of the book.

To make a long story short Panksepp outlines the major emotional affective brain circuits that control our most rudimentary affective states, all of which are affedtive and hierarchical. The large, hanging branches may be the most obvious parts of the tree the cortex but without the trunk and roots the subcortical affective circuits the tree can’t survive. Panksepp had a knack for using simplistic language to make complex concepts more clear.
That’s evident throughout this book. His theories about REM states and the origins of consciousness are really interesting as well.
It took me forever to read this because I just started a new job right around the time I started reading it, which was annoying!
It’s worth your time. Feb 26, Edward Sudall rated it it was amazing. Dense for a lay reader but very rewarding. The implications of biological construction along with social and psychological construction is fascinating. Especially to consider emotions with nonlinguistic physiological causes, that we somehow ‘share’ because of bodily commonalities but different sets of the social environment and thinking that might trigger the expression of different – or probably ‘modulated’ – behaviours and emotions.

This is a hefty introduction to neuroscience, and I’m glad I was introduced to it. Oct 08, Vasile Corjan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Highly detailed, tough read, terminology wise is a struggle but worth it. Jan 26, Stanley Lippman rated it it was amazing. This book is foundational, but it is difficult neuroscience, so it is not for browsing.
If you wish a higher level treatment, with all its generalities and opaqueness his recent The Archaeology of Mind is preferable. As it says in its subtitle: The writing is very good for science, the illustrations are awful, but make the book much cheaper, and I find two column texts difficult to mark and wade through.
His newer book has none of that. I haven’t finished It but I find it a bit disappointing. May 06, Michele rated it really liked it Shelves: A good collection of articles on Affective Neuroscience, which could be useful for Affective Computing. I did not really need it, since it was too leaned toward the neurology point of view, but I guess I will get back to it when I will be working for my PhD. Jul 26, Brett rated it really liked it Shelves: A lucid overview of the neuroscience relating to emotion.
I’ll note that this is more of a textbook I read it for a magazine article that I was writing so it’s a pretty weighty read. But for the depth of the subject matter, it’s quite well done. Dec 09, Ana Paula Gonzalez Toledo rated it liked it. Jan 04, Ogi Ogas rated it it was amazing.
