Feeling emotions in the body

  • Nummenmaa et al (2013):
    •  employed an innovative method to determine whether the somatosensory feedback of emotions account for conscious emotional experiences
    •  Some emotions are consistently associated to certain bodily sensation maps
    • Evidence is concordant across Western European and Eastern Asian cultures
  • Therefore, emotions can be experienced in the body; somatosensory feedback can consistently trigger conscious emotional experiences.
