Guilt has been described as a quintessential moral emotion with an important regulatory function for the individual and society. Few studies have, however, empirically investigated guilt, largely because of challenges associated with its real-time elicitation. I aimed to elucidate the physiological and neural correlates of guilt by developing two novel emotion elicitation paradigms.
