Emotion Terms: Mod 40 1. Emotion= how we feel, see, express it Outside influenced you- stimulus Learned how to react to something Reaction Unconscious Chemicals/ NTs Feelings 2. James-Lange Body Reacts emotion 3. Cannon Bard- Body reacts + emotion are simultaneous 4. Two Factor (Schachter and Singer) Body reacts + interpretation emotion 5. Autonomic Nervous System a. Sympathetic NS Fight or flight b. Parasympathetic NS return to normal state 6. Polygraphs: lie detector machine. Works by measuring psychiological response that accompany emotion (ex. Changing in heart rate or breathing) 7. Hohmann’s Studies- asked WWII injured soldiers about changes in emotional feelings. Those paralyzed below the waist said to have same levels of emotions. Those paralyzed from the neck down said to have a decrease in emotional activity. This yields to the idea that feelings are “mostly shadows” of our bodily responses and behaviors. 8. Spillover effect = extreme level of emotion can transfer into another extreme emotion, maintaining the intensity (valence) of emotional level 9. Zajonc’s Studies- even if you are not aware of what a stimulus is (ex if you aren’t directly faced with it, or it is being quickly flashed before you in a lab setting) the stimulus (positive or negative) will affect your actions even if you are not consciously aware of the stimulus.

    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.
