Damasio (1994, 1999) presents the case that decisions, especially decisions

requiring immediate actions, are made on an emotional basis mainly based on

information stored in the limbic system. These decisions are sometimes called the “fast

circuit” of decisions and derived from massive amounts of data that are stored in the

preconscious and are not consciously thought out. The database for these emotions is

acquired through experience and stored in the structures found in the subcortical regions.

Even “slow circuit” based decisions made in the prefrontal cortex regions are

influenced by the emotional substrate. Experiments have borne out that positive emotions

are associated with the left frontal lobe and negative emotions are associated with the

right frontal lobe. Thus emotions cannot be separated from cognitive functioning.
