Enriching Affective Event Theory with an Organizational Neuroscience perspective.
In the forthcoming work appearing in the Cambridge Handbook of Workplace Affectivity (Eds. L. Yang, R. S. Cropanzano, C. Daus, & V. A. M. Tur - Cambridge University Press), Sebastiano presents an Organizational Neuroscience perspective on emotions.
This work discusses primary methodological motivations supporting the use of neuroscience in workplace affectivity. Intriguingly, it draws a strong theoretical parallel between the acknowledged Affective Event Theory (Weiss & Cropanzano, 1996; Weiss & Beal, 2005) and the neural circuitries involved in emotional information processing.
Neuroscience research relevant to the organizational affective literature is explained by covering the domains of both intra-individual and inter-personal affect, and more specifically, topics such as basic emotions, emotional contagion, and emotional intelligence, among others.
