What Emotions Tell Us About Behavior

Narcissism and envy, fear and panic…what do these pairs have to do with each other? And what can they tell us about human behavior?

Today, we listen back to two conversations from earlier this year. In the first half, host Ben Kieffer learns about new research on where fear originates in the brain. He talks with neuroscientist and psychiatrist Dr. John Wemme, of the University of Iowa.

And, in the second half hour, research at Iowa State University looks at how the relationship between narcissism and envy may provide some insight into sudden outbursts of aggressive behavior.
