To learn more about the theory of constructed emotion and the work of neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett, check out her book How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain.

Special thanks to the following musicians:

  • Helena Ahlb├Ąck (formerly of The Broken Assembly) - "Emotional"
  • Jon Luc Hefferman - "Upbeat"

Note: A previous version of this story stated that Tommy Jarrett had received $50,000 from the court. He actually received $50,000 in an out-of-court settlement.
