    Emotions can have profound effects on a wide range of cognitive processes (from attention and memory to decision-making). In the reverse direction, there is clear evidence that cognitive processes can modulate emotional responses. This special issue provides a broad sampling of recent, cutting-edge research on cognition and emotion. The overarching goal is to provide a deeper and more complete theoretical framework relating cognition and emotion, covering both behavioral and neuroscientific views.
