Lisa Feldman Barrett and how predictive brains construct emotion.
I've been interested in Lisa Feldman Barrett ever since I saw her answer to last year (2016)'s Edge question, "What do you consider the most interesting recent [scientific] news? What makes it important?" And she replied, "Your brain is predictive, not reactive."
Here she is again, in Nautilus magazine, discussing how emotions are constructed by the predictive brain. There is a video embedded into the link.
Ingenious: Inside a new theory of emotions that spotlights how the brain works.

It's a great essay and video.
No wonder therapists are so confused. Barrett (great name, by the way) has done some wonderful work.
