Example text

Emotional states are “felt” states because of these inputs from the body due to the interactions of the emotional neural circuit with the rest of the organism’s body. But what interests us here is that the changes which occur in the external shape, color, sound-producing organs, and movements of an individual’s body as a consequence of the activation of the individual’s emotional circuit can be perceived by another individual. In this way emotional states are not only subjectively felt but they are also expressed and made accessible to others.
