A Case for Interdisciplinary Research

Interdisciplinary Research

Richard J. Davidson

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents an overview of recent findings on the neural substrates of emotion. It illustrates the confluence between findings at the animal level, recent studies of humans using non-invasive brain-imaging methods, and the study of patients with localized brain lesions. The development of non-invasive imaging methods has provided an extraordinary window on the study of neural circuitry in intact people and has catalyzed an unusual hybrid of disciplines working collaboratively, most notably physics, neuroscience, and psychology. The implications of this new interdisciplinary hybrid for scientific training are enormous since graduate education must keep pace with the rapid blurring of disciplinary boundaries. Some examples of how this might occur are offered.

Keywords:   interdisciplinary research, emotion, prefrontral cortex, animal, affective style
