Abstract: The last two decades of neuroscience research has produced a growing number of studies suggesting that disparate psychological phenomena are all produced by domain-general predictive processes in the brain. When considered together, these studies form a coherent, neurobiologically-inspired research program for guiding psychological research about the mind and behavior. In this talk, we will consider several key assumptions and hypotheses that define this predictive processing approach and use questions about the nature of emotion to illustrate its potential for innovating theory and research.
