Wednesday 5 July
14.30 - 16.10 h.

We focus on knowledge emotions (curiosity, surprise, interest, boredom, doubt and confusion) and how they regulate reactions to our complex and surprising world. We discuss how and why these emotions arise, and what consequences they have for individual functioning.
