This paper focuses on how capabilities to interpret another agent’s emotions, and their biological realisation can be modelled. First a cognitive and a biological agent model to generate emotional states are introduced. These models involve the generation and sensing of body states. Next it is shown how emotion reading can be modelled both at a cognitive and at a biological level, following the Simulation Theory approach to mindreading. Furthermore, a cognitive Theory Theory model for emotion reading is presented. Finally, it is shown how the cognitive and biological agent models can be related.
