Transcript of 5 Theories of Emotion

James-Lange Theory
The James Lange theory was first created to challenge our common self belief of why we have emotions. William James and Carl Lange believed that ones emotions came from precieving ones psychological response to an external event. They believed that one did not smile because they felt happy but became happy because they smiled.
LeDoux theory
The LeDoux theory was created to show why ones reaction to something came with out acknowledging it. This theory proposed that if someone see's a spider for example they jump without knowing if the spider is dangerous or harmless.
Cannon-Bard theory
The Cannon-Brand theory was created to show that we experience emotion at the same time as that our physiological arousal occurs. This theory was created by Walter Cannon in the 1920s then was altered by Philip Brad in the 1930s. One example of this theory is our heart races in the presence of fear.
Zajonc theory

Lazarus theory
The Lazarus theory was created to show how we experience emotions depending on the way we evaluate the dangers around us. For example if one is driving at high speeds the driver will be scared of crashing while the passenger is feeling much joy of speeding across the road.
Danish Physiologist Carl Lange created the James-Lange theory.
Physiologist Walter Cannon created the Cannon-Bard theory.
Stanley Schachter and Jerome Singer created the Schachter-Singer theory.
Robert Zanjoc created the Zajonc theory;
Joseph LeDoux created the LeDoux theory.
Richard Lazarus created the Lazarus theory.
5 Theories
Robert Zanjoc created the Zanjoc theory, This theory proposed the same as the LeDoux theory to show why one reaction comes without acknowledging the threat.
For example if one is in the woods and hears a sound that person would automatically react to the sound without knowing what it is.
Schacter-Singer theory
The Schacter-Singer theory was created to show a new way of how we interpret emotion. Stanley Schacter and Jerome Singer proposed that the way we experience emotions depends on two factors psychological arousal and cognitive interpretation of that arousal. An example of this theory is if someone is in a music festival the will most likely label there feelings as excited but if there in a dangerous situation they may label there feelings as scared.
