We propose a methodological framework for the study of emotional control based on extensive computer sim- ulations with arti cial agents implementing emotional control mechanisms and demonstrate the methodology with simulations experiments in an arti cial environ- ment. Speci cally, a biologically plausible schema-based model of basic forms of fear and anger is proposed and tested with respect to a variety of parameter ranges.
