HOW EMOTIONS ARE MADE The Secret Life of the Brain

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Cassandra Campbell sounds like an engaging professor of a seminar. Unless you are a neurological specialist, much of this popular science audiobook will take you by surprise. Emotions are not hardwired into compartments of the brain, it would seem. They are mental constructs reacting to lifelong neural input. Such input varies from culture to culture. Consequently, emotional reactions to particular stimuli are not uniform among all peoples, an idea that is contrary to earlier scientific opinion. Campbell is an excellent narrator, particularly of the various anecdotes, which she enlivens as best she can. And she has no problem with the pronunciation of technical words or foreign phrases. Technically, this production is very good. Informationally, it is superb. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
