Emotion : 

Emotion

What is Emotion? : 

What is Emotion? Emotion is a response to a stimulus that involves physiological arousal, a cognitive (subjective) interpretation of the feeling related to that arousal, and a behavior that culminates in the outward display of the emotion.

Physiological Theories of Emotion: : 

Physiological Theories of Emotion:

James/Lange Theory : 

James/Lange Theory William James- tried to come up with a theory that explained the wide range of emotions that people experience. James believed that a physiological change takes place and then we perceive these changes prior to outwardly displaying the emotion. The emotion is the perception of a bodily change.

How does this work? :

Physiologically: : 

Physiologically: We feel sad because the tears are falling. We feel happy because our face is smiling. We feel anxious because our heart rate is up etc. - make a mean face for twenty seconds. - What happens?

Another Physiological View: : 

Another Physiological View:

Cannon/Bard Theory : 

Cannon/Bard Theory Provides some contradiction to the James/Lange Theory They asked: How do we account for the times when a bodily change takes place but no emotion follows as James believed it would? Give me an example of how this could happen-

What was their conclusion? :

Emotion is the result of: : 

Emotion is the result of: A simultaneous burst of activity in the brain and the “gut” or body that is perceived as an emotion. Give examples that show this simultaneous correlation-

Cognitive Theories of Emotion: : 

Cognitive Theories of Emotion:

A new view: : 

A new view: Cognitive theories were a result of the inability of physiological theory to adequately explain the origins of emotion: These theorists believe that cognition and a bodily change work together to produce an emotion. What you feel depends on how you interpret what just happened to you.

Does this view explain your ideas about personality and “it depends on the situation” responses? :

Experiments and theories: : 

Experiments and theories:

The Schachter/Singer Experiment : 

The Schachter/Singer Experiment A controlled experiment designed to find out if the physiological aspects associated with emotion can differ based on a persons interpretation of the situation. Can you think of an example of how this would work?

The experiment: : 

The experiment:

This is how it was organized: : 

This is how it was organized: The subjects thought they were going to participate in a study that tested the impact of Vitamin C on eyesight. 1 Group consisted of an informed group that was told they would receive a vitamin injection that would make their heart race and body tremble.

Group 2, the misinformed group was told that the injection would make them numb. :

Group 3, the uninformed group was not told anything about how their bodies would react to the injection. : 

Group 3, the uninformed group was not told anything about how their bodies would react to the injection.

The control Group:Was given a neutral injection that produced no symptoms, and they were also told nothing about how they would react to the injection. :

What Happened? Subjects were then taken in to a room where an experimenter was pretending to be another subject. His job was to act in different ways for each group. What would you do at this point if you were running the experiment? :

What does this experiment demonstrate? : 

What does this experiment demonstrate? Internal components of emotion impact people differently, depending on the perception of the world around them. How does this disprove James/Lange?

So- what is the proper use of the word Emotion? :
