The Neural Mechanism of Positive Emotion and the Effect of AI + Education on It

Chutian Guo
Abstract—Cognitive psychology, represented by the expansion-construction theory, believes that positive emotions can broaden the scope of cognition, promote cognitive processes such as creative problem solving, executive control, cognitive flexibility, attention and decision-making. However, they cannot explain the phenomena in some experiments that are contrary to this conclusion. Thus, the motivational dimension model came into being. The theory believes that the effect of emotion on cognition is related to the motivation of emotion rather than its valance. After combing the literatures, it was found that dopamine mediates the positive emotions promoting cognitive activities. The activation of frontal lobe, anterior cingulate cortex, orbitofrontal cortex, hippocampus and amygdala are all the brain mechanisms for positive emotions. Looking ahead, further research on neurophysiological mechanisms will promote scholars’ more comprehensive and profound understanding of positive emotions. AI + education refers to the deep integration and development of artificial intelligence and education, taking the application of artificial intelligence based on education scenes as the path to promote education equity, improve education quality and realize education personalization. It can better perceive students' dynamic learning path and emotional change, and the teaching effect is better.

Index Terms—AI + education, positive emotions, cognitive neural mechanism, brain limbic systems.
