13th Conference of the Estonian Association of Comparative Literature (EACL), 2019
The review covers the studies implemented at the intersection of cognitive and affective sciences that were presented at the conference of the International Society for Research on Emotion (ISRE) in July 2019 in Amsterdam. Three groups of studies are described: (1) interaction between emotional and cognitive processes — the most popular topics were the relationships between emotions and executive functions, memory, and decision making; (2) emotion perception including biological and social determinants of emotion perception, cross-cultural specificity of emotional expressions, and the role of facial mimicry; and (3) affective computing — the design of systems used for recognition and simulation of human emotions. The conference demonstrates the popularity of studies of the interactions between emotion and cognition.
