AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
MADE UP OF THE SYMPATHETIC AND THE PARASYMPATHETIC SYSTEMS; CONTROLS PHYSIOLOGICAL AROUSAL
SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
AROUSING; Think about a time you've been in a really dangerous or frightening situation. In that situation your body responded by, for example, increasing your heart rate, raising your respiration, moving blood from one place (e.g., your digestive system) to another (your muscles), etc. These responses are all "arousal" responses which get you ready to fight or flee in times of danger.
PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
CALMING; main function is to conserve/restore your body's energy. For example, its responsible for sending signals to slow your heart rate and breathing, and speed up your digestive tract in order to digest calories and save energy.
POLYGRAPH TEST
this test is not a lie detector; it measures your PHYSIOLOGICAL signs (blood pressure, heart rate, sweat); there is a correlation between lying and the PHYSIOLOGICAL signs BUT correlation DOES NOT mean causation.
FRAMING: Defense - passed
Prosecuter - failed
CATHARSIS
Emotional Release --> Releasing agressive or negative energy in a good way relieves agressive urges --> for example, you're really mad about failing your math test, so you might go outside and run for a long time to calm yourself down because running release your emotions. Or if a young boy watches a sexual video which leads to him being sexually aroused... yet he cannot act on this urge so to release it, he goes outside and plays soccer with his friends to release his agressiveness.
FEEL-GOOD, DO-GOOD PHENOMENON
people's tendency to be helpful when already in a good mood.

Example: Ron got an A on his chem exam and his parents gave him a new car. When his friend Bob needs help with something, Ron is more likely to help him since he's alreayd in a good mood.
SUBJECT WELL BEING
OUR SENSE OF SATISFACTION WITH OUR LIVES; HOW WE FEEL ABOUT IT; INVOLVES INTROSPECTION AND COGNITION
ADAPTATION LEVEL
adapting to something that is going on in our life so it's neutral.

ex: if you get a pay raise, you'll be estatic in the beginning, but then afte r a while you'll get used to it and just feel so-so towards it and possibly demand more.
RELATIVE DEPRIVATION
THE PERCEPTION THAT WE ARE WORSE OFF THAN SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS SIMILAR TO US.

For example, let's say you have a group of friends you study with (and you tend to compare yourself to them) and on a couple of exams they all do well and you do poorly, even though you all studied the same amount at the same times, etc. You may feel that you are worse off than them because they are doing better than you.
JAMES-LANGE
this theory says that emotions are the perceptions of certain bodily changes.

For example, you see a bear in the woods, and you begin to tremble. You then identify the fact that you are trembling and conclude that you are afraid..."I am trembling, therefore I am afraid."
CANNON-BARD
an emotion is produced when some stimulus triggers the thalamus to send information simultaneously to the brain (specifically, the cerebral cortex) and the autonomic system (including the skeletal muscles). Thus, the stimulus is perceived at both a physiological and the subjective level; BOTTOM UP PROCESSING; NEITHER CAUSE THE OTHER
NEUROSCIENTIFIC THEORY
SCHACTER TWO FACTOR THEORY
TO EXPERIENCE EMOTION, ONE MUST BE PHYSICALLY AROUSED AND COGNITIVELY LABEL THE AROUSAL. ALSO COGNIOTIN IS INFLUENCED BY THE SITUATION WE'RE IN
