Running head: CHECKPOINT: EMOTIONS1CheckPoint: EmotionsTiffany Nicole Cooper University of PhoenixPSY240Jwaundace Belcher February 07, 2011
CheckPoint: EmotionsDarwin: Darwin’s theory suggested that; emotions in all humans and in other species derivefrom the theory of evolution. This theory was made up of three main ideas; 1.

The Cannon-Bard theory suggests that that the experience of emotion and theexpression of emotions were two separate actions, yet they had equal responses that were caused by the brain’s feelings of the emotions and the autonomic and somatic nervous system'sexpression. However, one does not initiate or directly cause the other. This theory does not holdup to analysis as well due to some reports that have shown the autonomic and somatic nervous
