The review of emotions research will include: definition and function of emotions, basic and complex emotions, dimensional and categorical models of emotion, emotion perception, models of emotion- processing, social aspects of emotions. The individual differences topics will centre on the relatively new construct of emotional intelligence (EI), but will also include other individual difference approaches, for example, personality/affect relationships, emotion regulation, and coping.
