Where do emotions come from, and why do we experience them? Is there a connection between reason and emotion? In this program, host Michael Mosley uses vintage footage and his own willingness to be a test subject to review classic and sometimes disturbing experiments on the nature of fear, love, and empathy. The discussion includes John B. Watson’s tests on 9-month-old “Little Albert,” in which the infant was conditioned to feel fear; António Damásio’s findings on gambling, logic, and decision making; and the work that Harry Harlow did with monkeys and their surrogate mothers that helped change thinking about the value of cuddling a newborn baby.
