Abstract
This panel examines how emotions and biology are linked to attitudes and values. On one hand, three papers focus upon the influence of emotions (and particularly anxiety) on different dependent variables: public opinion toward European integration, learning, information processing, and political involvement. Beyond the direct effects of emotions, some of the papers also seek to identify factors that mediate these relationships, specifically gender and political efficacy. On the other hand, two papers analyze the impacts of biological factors (such as health and startle response) on political trust, beliefs about egalitarianism, and redistribution preferences in numerous countries.
