Posner et al. (2005) elaborated a similar model. , Damasio 1994; Rolls 1999, 2005). , LeDoux 1996; Phelps 2005). Emotion plays an implicit, but powerful role in guiding executive functions of the brain. Yet the interaction of emotion and executive functions of the brain is bidirectional. Executive functions not only are activated and sustained by emotion but also are involved in modulating emotion and in managing its effect on behavior. As Denckla (1996) noted, a very basic element in the evolution of an individual’s capacity for self-control, from preschool years onward, is development of the ability to inhibit and modulate expression of emotion so that intense emotion does not intrude excessively on important cognitive tasks or spill over into impulsive behaviors that may be hurtful or otherwise maladaptive.

Both of our models include regulation of alertness and activation as well as regulation of and by emotion.
