The study of relationships between “emotion (s), cognition and behavior” opens up prospects for both scientific renewed approach to classical questions of how the human mind works and to explore new objects. The aims of this project are:
To promote the exploration of the relationship between emotion (s) and cognition in its various dimensions (perception, attention, memory, categorization, thinking and reasoning, interpretation, imagination, decision, choice and control of action and communication), from individual level, interpersonal and collective, natural, pathological or altered in association with the social, cultural and social dimensions as in biological or language;
To contribute to the study of fundamental processes of development, learning, aging in relation to emotions and cognition;
To address issues of trial activities and decision-making, empathy, cooperation, or trust, beliefs and moral behaviour, modes of recognition of the roles and social status, behavior recognition social, but also dominance and competition.
This call is open to all perspectives, both within human evolution and history of cultures and civilizations or the study of behavior and individual development throughout life, via the approach of behavioral disorders. It will emphasize interdisciplinary approaches and projects that will address the relationship between emotion and cognition. Indeed the nature of this relationship (autonomy, interdependence, or integration of emotion in the cognitive system) is in itself an important research question. The understanding of social and cultural links between emotion and cognition may renew the classic debate between nature/nurture.
