  1. Combinations of basic emotions, may be learned, specific to culture
  2. Carved through evolution, reflected by facial expressions, universal
  3. Connections with amygdala, medial prefrontal cortex, ACC
    correlation between insult activation and perception of internal body states
    Larger right insula: more aware of body states
  4. emotions only varied on valence scale, meaning of facial expressions varied across cultures
    later found basic emotions are cross cultured
    anger, fear, disgust, sadness, happiness, and surprise
  5. Emotions processed by specific brain regions, different emotions processed by different regions
    orbitofrontal cortex= anger
    anterior cingulate gyrus= sadness
    insula= disgust
    amygdala= fear
  6. Change or hide emotional response to the situation, actually increases arousal and stress

  41. can read by sounding out, but generalize sounds
  42. Chomsky: language is so different from animals it cannot be natural selection
    Pinker: only natural selection could make such a complex system
    Vocalizations in other animals are to influence others, may not even be intentional

    dopamine is associated with learning
    encode reinforcement
  47. 12-18 months
    has at least 50 words by 18 months, begin combining, mostly nouns
  48. complexity and abstraction, more anterior is more complex
