Explaining the enjoyment of negative emotions evoked by the arts : the need to consider empathy and other underlying mechanisms of emotion induction.

Vuoskoski, J. K. and Eerola, T. (2017) 'Explaining the enjoyment of negative emotions evoked by the arts : the need to consider empathy and other underlying mechanisms of emotion induction.', Behavioral and brain sciences., 40 . pp. 42-43.
