What if everything you thought you knew about what you feel and why you feel it turned out to be completely wrong? For thousands of years, people have believed that individual emotions live in different parts of the brain or body. However, the rise of modern neuroscience has allowed us to test these claims and discover they are myths.

Lisa Feldman Barrett presents a new theory of emotions — what they are, where they come from and why we have them – that could revolutionise psychology, healthcare, law and our understanding of the human brain. She reveals the latest research of the new science of emotion, mind and brain and why it matters for our health, our families and our society.
