Inquiry kicks off the New Year with an hour special on how our brains create the emotions we feel.

How does our brain process fear? What are emotions and how are they different from feelings? These are just a few of the questions we will talk about tonight when we have a conversation with LEAH OLSON, who is a teacher and has a PhD in neuroscience. Together with Elizabeth Johnston, she has written an outstanding review of the science of THE FEELING BRAIN: THE BIOLOGY AND PSYCHOLOGY OF EMOTIONS.

Tonight on Inquiry, we continue our conversation about the biology and psychology of emotions when we talk with ELIZABETH JOHNSTON. She has a doctorate in visual neuroscience from Oxford University and is currently on the psychology faculty of Sarah Lawrence. She is the co-author, with Leah Olson,  of the monumental textbook THE FEELING BRAIN: THE BIOLOGY AND PSYCHOLOGY OF EMOTIONS. Tonight we will talk about what the latest research says about the role of our physical body in experiencing emotions, making decisions and addictive behavior. And we talk about Phineas Gage and the crowbar case.
