Emotion

Involves physical, and cognitive arousal and affects motivation.
Three theories of emotion:

1

James-Lange Theory

Experiencing an emotion is a result of perceiving a bodily response to arousing stimuli.

2

Cannon-Bard Theory

We feel BOTH emotion and bodily response due to arousing stimuli.

3

Schacter-Singer theory (attribution of arousal)

Stimuli trigger a state of physiological arousal, but the emotional experience depends on interaction between the bodily response and the cognitive interpretation of the stimulus.
