d. Exhaustion: Core body flow goes down which causes organ failure and the rat dies by drowning. 2. Ie Titanic drowning scene iii. Many different responses to stress 1. Physiological-blood pressure, galvanic skin response-amt of resistance in skin and amt of salt in sweat- lie detector tests use this (Hansell said this is bogus because some ppls gsr doesn’t change) 2.

Now a group of criminals can spend a moderate time in jail (which is the highest possible outcome within a group.) but also no jail can be spent if one of the group members rats them out. e. Example: Escaping a burning theater. i. Competitive response: A lot more people die because of mass chaos. ii. Stay calm and cooperative walk out doesn’t work here but its noted more people would live under such a response. 3. Cognitive: Adapt/improvise/overcome. Black and White documentary experiment. Documentary (Based on some coming of age tribe ritual.) Subincision or blood letting which ended with male penis becoming bifurcated. Once people saw it for the first time without prior knowledge well there were mixed reviews (throwing up, screaming, running out of room.) But those who had a lecture prior to the screening accepted that it was a cultural thing and didn’t have feelings of disgusted, fear, or depression. 4. Emotional i. Intubation procedure: ii. Tube camera used to take pictures of inside stomach. iii. This tube needed to be swallowed which took awhile because most people started choking. b. Emotional preparation: i.

Distress responses: physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral iii. Personality: 1. Example from class: Jumping out of a plane with a parachute. (Sky diving.)Auto parachute jump. Nowadays its a teacher student thing where the teacher pulls the cord after a certain amount of free fall. 2. In Hansell’s day: Because he was in a frat party, him and his buddies decided to go for parachuting. It cost 50.00 per person for training and the jump. (The training was jumping off a chair.) The stress is high now. The parachute gets put on and the individual feels a lot heavier. The plan was scary looking.There are no seats or anything to passengers sit on the floor. Flying up. Now JUMP. As person goes down so does the stress.
