The paper describes modeling of cognition-emotion interaction implemented in a neural network named Crossbar Adaptive Array in 1981. The architecture was proposed to meet two challenges: solving the delayed reinforcement learning problem for neural networks, and building a self-learning system (no advice and no reinforcement from environment) based on a neural network. The architecture introduced computation of feelings, and their interaction with learning and decision making mechanisms. It
