1. What is the James-Lange feedback theory?

  • Emotions are a psychological percept that are not linked to the bodies responses to external stimuli.
  • There is a deterministic relaish between bodily reactions+emotions. Stimuli cause a direct bodily response which in turn creates an emotional experience. There is no emotion without bodily reaction.
  • There is an interactive relationship between bodily reactions+emotions. Emotions can cause a bodily reaction which causes a physiological response, and vice versa.
  • There is a deterministic relaish between bodily reactions+emotions. Stimuli cause an emotional response which in turn creates a bodily reaction. There are no bodily reactions without emotion.

2. What about a neural basis for other emotions?

  • Animals lack self awareness, therefore we will never truly understand basic social or emotional responses
  • Other emotions are less well understood, with mixed fMRI results and no as of yet brain lesion pps with specfic damage affecting these emotions. Social emotions e.g pride are currently under research scrutiny
  • Other basic and social emotions have sufficient animal models but no human fMRI research evidence as of yet

3. What does the Limbic theory (1937) propose?

  • It is a neual circuit of the cingulate cortex, hippocampus, anterior thalamus and hypothalamus that control our emotion
  • It is a neual circuit of the prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, superior thalamus and hypothalamus that control our emotion
  • The orbitofrontal cortex and amygdala have a neural circuit which mediates emotion
  • The insula and amygdala have a neural circuit which mediates emotion

4. What kind of damage did patient SM sustain?

  • Symmetrical bi-lateral amygdala calcification on the medial temporal lobes.
  • Uni-lateral amygdala calcification on the right medial temporal lobe.
  • Uni-lateral amygdala calcification on the left medial temporal lobe.
  • A genetic disorder which gradually calcifies the temporal lobe including the amygdala

5. What is an emotion?

  • A predisposition to react in a certain way to an event or stimuli which induces a physiological response
  • May be used as a synonym for affect, emotion is how the face displays psychological feelings to another
  • A reaction to an event that includes a combo of string feelings, behavioural dispositions and physiological responses
