EMOTIONS AND BODY ACTION
- Emotions brings about reflexive body action
- Laycock- once induced by emotion, reflex emotion
- Mediates between organism and environment
- Functions according to principle of self-preservation
- Is automatic
- Automaticity is unconscious and you cant stop it
HARVEY CARR
- Emotion calls for deliberate action
- Emotional reactions are awakened when the organism is unable to respond
in an orderly and efficient fashion
- Emotion signals failure of instinct or presence of novelty
- Emotions help you to plan and it also helps you face novelty
- In this instance, emotion is quite adaptive
- It is adaptive because it helps you face your goals and it also energizes you

whole
- Unconditioned responses and instinctive responses to environmental stimuli
- Two-part bodily response
- He is talking about body action and the internal workings of the body
- Says there are certain things that will cause unconditioned responses and
says that people do have the capacity to learn and sway your emotional
response
- Emotions can help; they aid in self preservation
- Heuristics for adaptive behavior
- Appraisal of good vs. bad
- Aid in maintenance of homeostasis- signal that there is a problem and let us
act the right way
THE YERKES-DODSAN LAW

we feel and how that relates to the performance
