Running Head: EMOTIONS
In Cannon-Bard. These are Cannon-Bard and JamesLange. These two theories differ in that Cannon-Bard hypothesized that emotional expressions and experiences are parallel . emotion is seen as the response to interactions between two separately occurring stimuli (Pinel. 2007. 2007. p.426). 2007. In Cannon-Bard’s theories. 426). The Expression of Emotion in Man and Animals was Darwin’s book on the biological basis of emotion.Emotions 2 Emotions Biopsychology offers a number of theories on emotion. 2007). 2007. The limbic system is also the basis for some of the other theories on emotion (Pinel. p. 426). In his theory. James-Lange theorized that stimuli that promote emotion are received by the brain’s cortex and are interpreted by the brain.425). hostile human encounters (Pinel. These changes are then responsible for emotion in the brain (Pinel. The brain signals cause visceral These expressions are generally seen during changes through the autonomic nervous system which affect the somatic nervous system and skeletal musculature as well (Pinel. He hypothesized that emotional states and facial biopsychological expression are correlated (Pinel. 2007). Four schools of biopsychological theories are based on Darwin. p. p. stimuli that induce emotions cause the emotion to be felt in the brain as well as being expressed in the autonomic nervous system and thesomatic nervous system (Pinel. An example of this is the threat displays that accompany facial expressions we term ‘angry’. 2007). he constructed emotion as being evolutionarily based.
2007.Emotions 3 processes. 2007. James-Lange hypothesized that emotion is the direct cause of the reactions (Pinel. The expression of our emotional states is based on the concerted actions of the hypothalamus and limbic structures. Limbic theory also holds that the limbic system further interacts with the cortex to allow for emotional experience (Pinel. Limbic based theories are based on the idea that emotional expression is regulated by the thalamus’ border. . 428). p. p. 426).
