Identifying Emotions on the Basis of Neural Activation

We show that specific emotional states can be identified on the basis of their neural signatures, and that these signatures are reliably activated across episodes, individuals, and different emotional experiences. Results inform our understanding of emotional processes and suggest the potential to infer reactions to arbitrary stimuli.
