However, since goals are only one important type of prior expectations (desired states are just one among many types of expected states) we can generalise this view and hypothesise that affects such as pleasure and distress reflect the dynamics in prediction error reduction (Joffily and Coricelli, 2013). According to this view, emotional valence relates to confidence in one's own internal model of the world (Bodenhausen et al., 1994;Gasper and Clore, 2002;Seth and Friston, 2016;Badcock et al., 2017;Clark et al., 2018). In computational terms, emotional valence corresponds to the rate of change of free-energy over time (proper emotions such as fear or hope can only be explained once the second time-derivative of free-energy is taken into account; Joffily and Coricelli, 2013). ...
