    摘要: ‘Biochemical responses to horror, or, “Why do we like this stuff?”’ analyses human’s enigmatic interest in horror narrative. Analyses to date have been oversimplified, and overlook essential conditions and responses that take place during the consumption of horror narrative. A key misunderstanding is that the central question of the interest in horror is understood to be ‘Why do we find gratification in what by nature is so disturbing and disagreeable?’ This approach overweighs the enjoyment that horror consumers feel, and ignores the fear response. The fear response is the starting point of any analysis of human interest in horror. This key emotional reaction is tightly linked to goal-directed, advanced cognition in humans, with these conditions functioning in feedback looping mechanisms in human psychology and physiology. This interplay is further conditioned within a framework of socio-biological conditions and adaptive pressures. The socio-biological framework and adaptive pressures yield other effects in human personality and society that also condition and add elements to the human interest in horror narrative. I argue that the most precise and comprehensive explanation of human interest in horror narrative is a sundry synthesis of scientific and sociological fundamentals. © 2017 Intellect Ltd Introduction.
