Selected Videos on Emotions
Below are several videos on emotions contained in the Films on Demand: Master Academic Collection to which the library subscribes.
The Adult Brain: To Think by Feeling
Once relegated to the backwaters of neuroscience, emotion is now considered integral to our overall mental health. This program focuses on the interplay between reason and emotion and the ways in which the brain’s emotional center has been found to overlay its hub of intellect and logic. Underscoring the link between brain malfunctions and pain, depression, and emotional paralysis, the film reveals the brain’s role in positive emotional responses such as laughter, excitement, happiness, and love.
Anger: Myths and Truths about the Emotion
This ABC News program explores the psychology and sociology behind the most dangerous of emotions.
Into the Mind: Emotions
In this program, host Michael Mosley uses vintage footage and his own willingness to be a test subject to review classic and sometimes disturbing experiments on the nature of fear, love, and empathy.
Mysteries of the Mind
Although it’s smaller than some varieties of grapefruit, the human brain remains a vast, unexplored territory—and a marvel of design and function. This classic program evokes lingering questions about the brain’s structure, how it works, the roles that experience and genetic history play in its development, the biology behind emotion and memory, and what happens when things go wrong inside the brain.
