The Anatomy and Physiology of Emotion

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This limited-participation session can only be joined by attendees who acquired a ticket through the supplemental event lottery.

This class explores what happens physiologically in response to emotion and the types of external stimulation that causes emotions. Many times, emotions are revealed in writing as the end product—a clenching of fists, a waterfall of tears. But emotion is the result of a progression of chemical processes that produce a buildup of feelings and physical changes along the way. And many human emotions are the result of years of conditioning that may start even before birth. Not only are these changes helpful to know in constructing your characters’ emotional reactions, but it’s also important to your readers’ responses. Craft a visceral journey through your manuscript by learning where emotions come from, which ones are similar (you may be surprised!), and which ones are polar opposites.
