The emotional brain : the mysterious underpinnings of emotional life by Joseph E LeDoux( Book )
58 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,762 libraries worldwide
What happens in our brains to make us feel fear, love, hate, anger, joy? do we control our emotions, or do they control us? Do animals have emotions? How can traumatic experiences in early childhood influence adult behavior, even though we have no conscious memory of them? In The Emotional Brain, Joseph LeDoux investigates the origins of human emotions and explains that many exist as part of complex neural systems that evolved to enable us to survive. Unlike conscious feelings, emotions originate in the brain at a much deeper level, says LeDoux, a leading authority in the field of neural science and one of the principal researchers profiled in Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence. In this provocative book, LeDoux explores the underlying brain mechanisms responsible for our emotions, mechanisms that are only now being revealed. The Emotional Brain presents some fascinating findings about our familiar yet little understood emotions. For example, our brains can detect danger before we even experience the feeling of being afraid. The brain also begins to initiate physical responses (heart palpitations, sweaty palms, muscle tension) before we become aware of an associated feeling of fear. Conscious feelings, says LeDoux, are somewhat irrelevant to the way the emotional brain works. He points out that emotional responses are hard-wired into the brain's circuitry, but the things that make us emotional are learned through experience. And this may be the key to understanding, even changing, our emotional makeup. Many common psychiatric problems - such as phobias or posttraumatic stress disorder - involve malfunctions in the way emotion systems learn and remember. Understanding how these mechanisms normally work will have important consequences for how we view ourselves and how we treat emotional disorders
Synaptic self : how our brains become who we are by Joseph E LeDoux( Book )

Anxious : using the brain to understand and treat fear and anxiety by Joseph E LeDoux( Book )
12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 879 libraries worldwide
"Collectively, anxiety disorders are our most prevalent psychiatric problem, affecting about forty million adults in the United States. In Anxious, Joseph LeDoux, whose NYU lab has been at the forefront of research efforts to understand and treat fear and anxiety, explains the range of these disorders, their origins, and discoveries that can restore sufferers to normalcy. LeDoux's groundbreaking premise is that we've been thinking about fear and anxiety in the wrong way. These are not innate states waiting to be unleashed from the brain, but experiences that we assemble cognitively. Treatment of these problems must address both their conscious manifestations and underlying non-conscious processes. While knowledge about how the brain works will help us discover new drugs, LeDoux argues that the greatest breakthroughs may come from using brain research to help reshape psychotherapy. A major work on our most pressing mental health issue, Anxious explains the science behind fear and anxiety disorders"--Provided from Amazon.com

Post-traumatic stress disorder : basic science and clinical practice by Joseph E LeDoux( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 147 libraries worldwide
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a psychiatric condition that can occur in anyone who has experienced a life-threatening or violent event. The trauma can be due to war, terrorism, torture, natural disasters, accidents, violence, or rape. In Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Basic Science and Clinical Practice, widely regarded experts in the field outline the neurobiology of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and provide a range of state-of-the-art treatment strategies for clinicians. Originally associated exclusively with military service, PTSD is now recognized as a disorder that can result from any traumatic situation and can afflict children as well as adults. In this ground-breaking title, the authors review the current state of knowledge of PTSD, covering not only pharmacological and psychological treatment strategies but also epidemiological findings, the neurobiology and neurophysiology of PTSD, and brain imaging issues. In all, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Basic Science and Clinical Practice provides today's most relevant and up-to-date information regarding the treatment and understanding of those affected by PTSD and is an invaluable resource for all clinicians and neuroscientists concerned with the condition
