Temporal Causal Network Model for Appraisal Process in Emotion

Fawad Taj, Michel C. A. Klein

Abstract

Most of the emotion theories consider appraisal as the major component in an emotional episode. The appraisal theories legitimately try to explain the actual process of appraisal. Number of computational architecture for emotional and cognitive agents exists, which try to incorporate the major cognitive appraisal theories, but they compromise on a certain aspect of the theories due to its complexity. In this paper, a temporal causal network model approach is used to address the dynamics and temporal processing of different evaluation checks in the appraisal component. The checks included in the model are inspired by the Component Process Model and other neuro and cognitive science literature. Simulations have been done to show the temporal causality between different evaluation checks.
