Cold emotion

Cold emotion is a psychological state resulting from the injection of adrenalin. The bodily changes that occur resemble those associated with an emotional experience, but the subjects report feeling that they should be having an emotional experience without actually doing so, i.e. they feel tense or excited without knowing why.
