This book is based on the symposium organized in the framework of the 380th birthday of the State University of Groningen, The Netherlands.
The chapters represent an overview of the state- of-the-art of the different fields belonging to the emotional motor system. The invited speakers prepared their papers AFTER the conference, making it possible for them to incorporate the findings of other authors in their own chapters. This approach, and peer reviewing of all chapters, makes the volume an excellent addition to this renowned series.
