Expressive behaviors 3. Conscious experience o According to different theorists, does emotion or physiological arousal come first? James & Carl Lange- feel emotion after we notice physiological responses Walter Cannon & Phillip Bard- we feel emotion at the same time that our bodies respond. Stanley Schachter & Jerome Singer- two-factor theory focused on the interplay of thinking and feeling, not on the timing of feeling. Proposed that emotions have two components, physical arousal and a cognitive label. o Which theories add in a cognitive factor? 2. At what point does cognition come into play? The Spillover Effect- occurs when our arousal from one event influences our response to other events. Emotional arousal is sometimes general enough to require us to define the emotion we are experiencing. Arousal fuels emotion; cognition channels it. 3. Objective 38-7.
