The skin conductance response is involved in the preparation for and response to stimuli with emotional significance. The neural mechanisms responsible for the generation of the skin conductance response are not well understood despite the common use of this signal as an index of emotional response. Data from anatomical, lesion, and neuroimaging studies in humans suggest that the amygdala, a component of the brain circuit for emotion, plays a critical role in the generation of the skin conductance response. Here we employ a novel combination of existing techniques to understand the stimuli that elicit skin conductance responses in the monkey and the neural mechanisms in the amygdala that participate in its generation. We recorded skin conductance responses in monkeys trained to perform a passive image viewing task. This paradigm is a staple of human emotion research but to date has not been adapted to the monkey. In addition, skin conductance responses to these stimuli were recorded in conjunction with single unit responses from the amygdala. This study addresses the relationship between the activity of single neurons recorded from identified nuclei of the monkey amygdala and autonomic responses. Neurons in multiple nuclei of the amygdala showed reliable changes in neuronal discharge prior to the skin conductance response. These neurons were primarily in the dorsal nuclei of the amygdala, which confirms predictions made from anatomical and neuroimaging data. It is suggested that these changes in neuronal discharge may correspond to the generation of this autonomic component of the expression of emotion.

In order to better understand how emotion processes contribute to children's broader self-regulatory abilities, the interrelations among the multiple components of emotion need to be better understood. While some aspects of emotional events are difficult to observe in young children, such as their cognitive appraisals of emotions, other aspects are more easily observable. Expressions of emotion, attempts to regulate emotions, and physiological changes that may accompany both types of behavior are important aspects of emotional events. However, how these components interact and especially, how they unfold over time, is not well understood. For example, while prior work has emphasized physiological reactivity, little is known about physiological recovery processes in children. Using anger inductions as a context for examining these questions, the present research examined four overarching goals using a longitudinal sample. First, dynamic patterns of autonomic reactivity and recovery in response to anger were documented. At 3.5 years, children showed reactivity in both autonomic branches and low recovery. At 6 years, children showed sympathetic reactivity and strong recovery. Second, these studies examined links between these physiological patterns and individual differences in emotion regulation capabilities. We found that, at 3.5 years, both emotion expressions and emotion regulation were associated with physiology. Regulation strategies that reflected engagement were associated with greater reactivity and recovery, and greater sympathetic recovery was also associated with mother-reported global emotion regulation. In contrast, strategies that reflected disengagement were associated with less reactivity but greater arousal in recovery. Third, we examined whether these links between physiology and emotion behaviors changed with age, and found that disengagement continued to be associated with less autonomic reactivity at 6 years. Fourth, these links were examined longitudinally. Prospective analyses showed that physiological responses at 3.5 years predicted emotion behaviors at 6 years, and vice versa, suggesting that the links between these constructs occur via bidirectional transactions over development. Together, these findings support a complex and multi-faceted model of the development of children's emotion expression and regulation, of which autonomic recovery processes appear to be an important component.

Emotion: Theory, Research, and Experience, Volume 1: Theories of Emotion, presents broad theoretical perspectives representing all major schools of thought in the study of the nature of emotion. The contributions contained in the book are characterized under three major headings - evolutionary context, psychophysiological context, and dynamic context. Subjects that are discussed include general psycho-evolutionary theory of emotion; the affect system; the biology of emotions and other feelings; and emotions as transitory social roles. Psychologists, sociobiologists, sociologists, psychiatrists, ethologists, and students the allied fields will find the text a good reference material.
