Emotion

1. inner feeling such as anger, fear, elation, etc.

2. physiological state that can be measured through heart rate, electrogram, skin conductance, etc. Behavioral biologists have been cautious about applying either one of these definitions to nonhuman animals owing to the problem of anthropomorphism (see Morgan’s canon).
