COGNITION AND EMOTION Is Cognition or interpretation what causes/precedes emotion? COG --> EMO - It s easy for us to talk ourselves into emotional states - Retrieve various ideas about self - Even if things are stated in a generic way, if you go through self statements that get worse and worse you can talk yourself into despondency. (Not clinical depression but influences mood state) - Example: 1. I was really excited to get to NY, life was so great! 2. But when I got here I realized it wasn t as easy to make friends 3. Actually, I don t have many friends. 4. I m working hard, but I can t even get good grades. 5. So I m pretty lonely and stupid. 6. Actually, life kinda sucks. Yeah, FML. But it can also go the other way. EMO --> COG - Put in experimental condition where you re induced to feel sad, and then shown a paragraph from a story. What will you remember? Tend to be things that are consistent with your mood state. ( Inducing emotion ) - Mood Congruent Memory - Use Music - People listen to music and then see effects. - But there are confounding factors - if lyrics are depressing then you re being induced to have a negative mood state, cognitive memories are being primed through words. - So use music with no words? - But if you re highly familiar with song and it reminds you of something that happened in your life, then you re still priming cognitive memory.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
