And why would scientists tickle rats to understand the neural mechanisms of emotion? Jaap Panksepp, internationally renowned psychobiologist and emeritus from Bowling Green State University, Ohio, coined the term "affective neuroscience"and states that it can help us understand how our brain works. This interview was held by Arvid Leyh in the "Languages of Emotion Cluster of Excellence" of Freie Universität Berlin in June 2011.

Richie Davidson on Affective Neuroscience   In this talk, affective neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson PhD will explore recent scientific research on the neuroscience of positive human qualities and how they can be cultivated through contemplative practice. Distinctions among different forms of contemplative practices will be introduced and they will be shown to have different neural and behavioral consequences, as well as important consequences for physical health in both longterm and novice practitioners. New research also shows that meditation-based interventions delivered online can produce behavioral and neural changes. Collectively, this body of research indicates that we can cultivate adaptive neural changes and strengthen positive human qualities through systematic mental practice. see also
