    The question of emotion and what it means has vexed us for a long time;
    This video and the professor Panksepp represent the most cutting edge
    understanding of emotion in animals and humans

    Prof. Panksepp has measured the 7 fundamental emotional systems and found
    that some aspect of these 7 systems in rats, guinea pigs, chicken
    (experience loneliness and sadness upon separation), all the other way up
    to humans and benefits to humans

    There are many questions that arise. Research and implications are amazing
    at many levels.

    We are brothers and sisters under the skin and we better recognize that.
    And once we understand them (animals), we will finally understand
    ourselves. – Jaak Panksepp

  5. Theodore Hoppe says:

    The lecture is informative on many levels but it points out, at about
    minute 7 , that emotional issues that can develop around the attachment/
    social bonding chemistry. 

  6. Laure-Anne Visele says:

    Brilliant review on the neuroscience behind emotions and the link between
    humans and animals.

  7. Sarah Vos Thrysøe says:

    Rotter kan grine og høns kan blive kede af det.
    Lær de 7 grundlæggende følelser at kende så du kan bruge dem i din
    markedsføring.

    A great man. Thank you, Jaak Panksepp, for persisting in the face of
    scientific disapproval from the behaviourists.

  10. Iskander Rarus says:

    People Panic because of Fear, and Fear sets in while in Panic, so these two
    cannot be separated as here… Feelings-Emotions, so little we know…

    I picked up very Good points here and there. Enjoyed the video. 

  12. Rick Snyder says:

    Emotions are such a juicy topic, and this presentation puts me to sleep.
    This is the problem of when a mental-first paradigm (science) tries to make
    sense of emotions. There will always be a gap when someone tries to study
    emotions instead of feeling them. What if emotions are not initiated in the
    brain? And why do we still look to animals to better understand our own
    emotions? I appreciate the curiosity here, but it seems like we keep
    looking in the wrong areas to understand what, how and why we are the way
    we are…

    This guy is so often full of shit and I’m only 2:25 minutes in. Science
    DOES answer “why” questions as well as “how” questions. And you can’t only
    tell the emotions of an animal through neuroscience… the dog wasn’t
    thinking “i want to eat you” .. all of the evidence such as body language
    points towards the dog being calm and having some sort of benevolent
    feelings towards the faun.

    FEAR, which contrary to what many researchers claim, does NOT begin in the
    amygdala, but begins much lower.

  23. Fraser Logan says:

    Hmm. Begs the asking of an interesting ethical dilemma: is it better to
    subdue suicidal tendencies with anti-depressants, which have provided an
    evolutionary drive for progress, and often still do, or disallow
    anti-depressants thus discouraging complacency but perhaps creating less
    happiness? Sorry for the triple negative, but it felt a little relevant.
