Transcript of Cannon-Bard Theory Vs. Schachter-Singer Two Factor Theory

In the late 1920s, Walter Cannon and Philip Bard proposed their own theory in refutation of the James-Lange Theory of Emotion. According to the Cannon-Bard Theory of emotion, emotions and bodily changes do not share a cause-and-effect relationship.
Example: I see a snake --I am afraid--I begin to tremble.

Schachter and Singer's Two-Factor Theory
In the 1960`s, Stanley Schachter and Jerome E. Singer created the Schachter–Singer theory, or two-factor theory of emotion, states that emotion is based on two factors: physiological arousal and cognitive label.
Example: I see a strange man walking toward me.
My heart is racing and I am trembling.

I am frightened!

I choose Cannon-Bard Theory because I like how it says that emotions and bodily changes do not share a cause-and-effect relationship. I believe this is true because we are feeling a certain type of emotion doesn't mean that will necessarily effect the way we act to certain things.
Cannon-Bard Theory
- a theory that emotion-provoking events simultaneously bring about physiological responses and emotions.
Schachter and Singer's Two-Factor Theory
- a theory that experiencing an emotion is often based on becoming physiologically aroused and then attaching a cognitive label to the arousal.
