Table of Contents: Cognitive Neuroscience - Emotion


Issue Image

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system and is an interdisciplinary biological science that extends across multiple fields, including, chemistry, computer science, engineering, linguistics, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, physics, and psychology.

This collection represents a first step in gathering under easily identifiable rubrics some of the most recent neuroscience research published across the PLOS journals. The Collection has been organized into broad categories in response to the commonly articulated request from our users that we provide more structured and efficient access to papers of interest in the PLOS corpus. This section includes papers about Emotion.

Articles in the Neuroscience Collection are presented in order of publication date. New articles will be added as they are published.

PLOS welcomes submissions in this field.
