Recent research on the interplay between cognition, emotion and motivation are growing (e.g., Crocker et al, 2013. Cromwell & Panksepp, 2011; Linnenbrink, 2006; Masmoudi et al., 2012; Pekrun & Stephens, 2009; Pessoa, 2008; Wisco & Nolen-Hoeksema, 2010). This involves reciprocal modulation and regulation relationships between these three dimensions. Nonetheless, since the studies of Lazarus (Lazarus, 1991), these researches are not abundant enough regarding the significant outcomes of the integrative research, first in the understanding of the mind and brain functioning, then in improving our daily lives, and finally in the development of performance in a large variety of fields.
