Using a video game to understand the origin of emotions. A number of studies have sought to connect given emotions, such as fear or pleasure, to specific areas of the brain, but without success. A research team has now analyzed volunteers while they were playing a video game that had been specially developed to arouse different emotions. The results, show that different emotional components recruit several neural networks in parallel distributed throughout the brain, and that their transient synchronization generates an emotional state.
