Emotions can be defined as internal states elicited by rewards and punishers, which are anything an animal will work to achieve or avoid, respectively. There has recently been increased interest in adopting insects such as fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) for basic and applied research on emotion and its disorders. I will review this research and outline necessary lines of future investigation focusing on the fundamental issues of heritable variation in emotion and its association with fitness
