Emotions in attacker-defender conflicts

Published inBehavioral and Brain Sciences, vol. 42
Publication date2019

The distinction between attackers and defenders might help to refine the understanding of the role of emotions in conflicts. Here we briefly discuss differences between attackers and defenders in terms of appraisals, action tendencies, emotional preferences, and brain activities. Finally, we outline how attackers and defenders may differ in their response to emotion-based interventions that aim to promote conflict resolution.
