Understanding emotional attention from an emotion regulation goal perspective.

We examine the idea that emotion regulation goals cause and modulate attentional biases to emotional information. Based on this idea, we predict that what stimuli will be attended (e.g., positive or negative) and how attention might be deployed (i.e., towards or away) will depend on the emotion regulation goal at stake.
