This chapter, which connects political psychology and decision neuroscience by addressing the challenges to the development of theory about the role of emotions in decision making, also considers the recent work in areas relating emotional processes to prudential decision making and reward, as well as social judgment. The dichotomy between cognition and emotion is described. In addition, a proposal that seeks to develop the concept of emotional processing within the context of complex decision making is reported. The methodological challenges strongly indicate that construction of inferential models of information processing in the brain needs to proceed by an integrative approach. Judgment and decision making in the social realm demonstrates some of the strongest links with emotional processing. The outlook for productive collaborative work between decision neuroscientists and political psychologists is promising.

Keywords:   political psychology, decision neuroscience, decision making, social judgment, cognition, emotion, emotional processing
