Emotions and information processing: a theoretical approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


An animate system standing in nature and trying to investigate its surroundings for different purposes does a type of cognitive processing. Emotions as mental states are leading human cognitive features that attract life by interactions processed in the world. This paper examines how this cognitive feature process works. By researching history and theories related to emotions and their generation, it becomes clear that information processing is discussed as a tool for their processes. Three different styles of information processing are evaluated for emotional processes. The pragmatic notion of information processing fits as a processing tool in modeling emotions and artificial emotions and explains the emotional process.
