Introduction: Sensory experiences could be impacted the emotional state. Perception is the process that the brain selects and interprets sensations. Each perception has two physical and emotional parts. The physical part is memorized in the hippocampus and emotional part is saved in the amygdala. New perceptual experience is mixed with rehearsal memory that saved previously. Several related perceptions in different times and spaces make a concept. The collection of concepts makes beliefs. The decision making is based on their beliefs which lead to selective attention. It can be changed during the time. The amount of reward or punishment of behaviors determines the value of beliefs. If the result of action is followed by reward, the positive mood is reinforced and the emotional circuit is activated. But the cognitive system is employed if the action is followed by a punishment or conflict.‎ The cognitive centers inhibit the emotion in a reciprocal function. Conclusion: This study reviewed data on the regions and models of emotion-cognition interaction. It  was concluded that metastable model of emotional system may be a factor to produce different emotional state according to a same sensation experimentation.
