Abstract

A model of the control of behaviour by a combination of direct stimulus-response (S-R) like and cognitive factors is extended to involve emotion. It is argued that emotion (a) interacts with such different levels of information processing and (b) is itself triggered at different levels of organization by processes that are similar to the S-R and cognitive. The model is applied to a range of phenomena that are related to emotion, such as modularity, impulsiveness, extinction, alcohol effects and attitudes.
