The cognitive regulation of emotional and mood states is an increasingly popular research topic in the fields of neuroscience, experimental and clinical psychology. This is in part because it touches on some of the most fundamental questions about how the human mind is organized and how different mental faculties interact with each other to produce meaningful behavior and to permit adaptive self-regulation. Also, there is hope that a better, mechanistic understanding of cognitive control processes will eventually lead to insights into the nature of affective disorders and bring forth new ideas for prevention and therapy. In this Frontiers Research Topic, we aim at bringing together researchers and clinicians from various disciplines and schools to initiate an intense discussion about i) the psychological, neural and genetic mechanisms of phenomena like reappraisal, (self-)distraction, affect labeling, acceptance, inhibition, response suppression, impulse control, and others; ii) the (short- and long-term) effects of cognitive emotion regulation on individual well-being, resilience, and mental health; iii) ways of improving cognitive emotion regulation and of exploiting this knowledge for prevention and treatment. We welcome empirical contributions (behavioral or neuroscientific) as well as computational modeling, theory, meta-analysis or review papers. Empirical contributions should not solely rely on self-report data but include at least one other-report, behavioral, physiological or neural outcome measure.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
