Vol. 17  No. 2  pp.


As an interactive structure in human mind the emotions contribute to the adaptive learning, rational decision making and communication proficiency. According to the psychological scheme of human mind, emotions have temporal dynamics and activate concurrently due to the variance of environmental stimuli. The affective exposition of mind can express and communicate the shared or diverse effects of simultaneous emotions to the environment. The role of emotions in the nature of agency has been identified and partially addressed. However, in multi-agent scenarios (MAS) it is required to facilitate agents with the mechanism of interactive emotional dynamics to resolve conflicts and respond quickly. Inspired from neuropsychology, and by considering the function of emotions in the establishment of agency this paper attempts to analyze and design the synergy of emotional dynamics that addresses the cooperation and competition in emotions due to the change in their determining parameters to achieve autonomy.
