Cognitive-Neoassocianistic Model (CNA)
A model that proposes that a wide variety of unpleasant feelings and experience of negative affect can lead to the development of angry feelings and display of emotional aggression. Negative affect activates ideas, memories and expressive-motor reactions associated with anger and aggression and rudimentary angry feelings. Subsequent thoughts involving attributions, appraisals and schematic conceptions can then intensify, suppress, enrich, or differentiate the initial reactions. Bodily reactions as well as emotion-relevant thoughts can activate the other components of the particular emotion network to which they are linked.
