Transcript of Emotion!
different emotions activated different physiological and brain-pattern responses (i.e. positive emotions may be linked to the left hemisphere of the brain while negative may be linked to the right)
you can read body language and faces to see how people are feeling!
one of the earliest theories about emotion
(William James & Carl Lange)
emotional state impacts motivation,
motivation impacts emotional state
biological/physiological changes that accompany stress dictate our emotion... in that order!
(Walter Cannon and Philip Bard)
disagreed with the order of James-Lange theory
thought physical changes and the emotion occurred at the SAME TIME
Cannon thought that this simultaneous action occurred thanks to the thalamus
(this has been disproved by recent research--other brain structures are involved too!)
completes the work started by the other two theories
emotion depends on your physical experience AND how you label it
*if you're physically aroused, your emotional experience is stronger to begin with
*but you still may not be able to tell certain emotions apart just by looking! This possibility for misreading physical cues is why POLYGRAPH tests are NOT infallible.
in people suffering injuries where they lose certain physical feelings, emotional responses can be less intense as well
* all of our theories about emotion have some truth to them thanks to findings like these
cognition CAN define emotion
cognition does not ALWAYS precede emotion
*according to Lazarus, some emotional responses do not require conscious thinking--but you're still thinking about the situation you're in!
*but these can be misread!
how emotions are expressed can depend on factors like culture and gender
expressions can affect our feelings too!
Now, we're going to apply what we've learned:
see if you can identify at least three different emotions during the course of the clip; make note of what physical characteristics help your thinking
based on the reaction, see which theory of emotion seems to be in play most often
