Question and answer
Describe the following biopsychology theories of emotion. Darwin Include the brain mechanisms involved with each.
Darwin theorized that emotions in humans and other species are the product of evolution. His theory was comprised of three primary ideas. First, emotional expression evolved from behavior predictability (what the behavior will do next). [ Second, if the behavior signals are beneficial, then they will evolve to increase the function of communication, sometimes forgetting the original function of
the behavior; survival often dictates changes in behavior patterns. Third, opposing messages are frequently communicated through opposite behaviors. The James-Lange theory of emotion differed from the typical perception of emotion expression and the feeling of emotion. James and Lange believed that the experience of emotion was caused by sensory stimulation, processed by the cortex, initiated in the autonomic nervous system to stimulate visceral organs and in the somatic nervous system to stimulate skeletal muscle response. Simply put, James and Lange believed that the autonomic nervous system's response of increased heartbeat and flight or flight response were the source of emotional feelings, instead of emotional feelings triggering those responses. The James-Lange theory of emotion does not hold up under scrutiny, because human patients who have lost autonomic and somatic feedback due to a broken neck or other serious injury still experience emotions at the capacity prior to injury and loss of the nervous systems' feedback.

Which is the correct theory for 1.Sleep plays no role in physiological functioning.recuperation or circadian.
Weegy: Sleep plays no role in physiological functioning. We become tired when it is dark out. Function of sleep is to restore energy levels Function of sleep is to conserve energy We become tired from wakefulness. [ [ We sleep until the body is physiologically sound. We sleep based on an internal timing mechanism. Sleep depends on vulnerability from predators. Sleep deprivation may cause behavioral disturbances. have We a sleep-wake cycle. When we sleep is based on some evolutionary aspects. 1. x Circadian x x x x x x x x x x x What are the main differences between the recuperation and circadian theories? Recuperation, in common usage, refers to a period of recovery. This has many uses, from medicine, in which sense it refers to the process by which medical patients recover from disease, injury, or mental illness, or finance, where it refers to the financial recovery of an individual or company. A circadian rhythm is a roughly-24-hour cycle in the biochemical, physiological or behavioral processes of living beings, including plants, animals, fungi and cyan bacteria. PSY 240 I would agree with recuperation more. I would agree with this more because it makes more sense to me than the circadian rhythm. ] ] (More)

Describe the stages of sleep. In which stage do we dream?
Weegy: Stage 1 Stage 1 is the beginning of the sleep cycle, and is a relatively light stage of sleep. Stage 1 can be considered a transition period between wakefulness and sleep. [ In Stage 1, the brain produces high amplitude theta waves, which are very slow brain waves. This period of sleep lasts only a brief time (around 5-10 minutes). If you awaken someone during this stage, they might report that they weren't really asleep. Stage 2 Stage 2 is the second stage of sleep and lasts for approximately 20 minutes. The brain begins to produce bursts of rapid, rhythmic brain wave activity known as sleep spindles. Body temperature starts to decrease and heart rate begins to slow. Stage 3 Deep, slow brain waves known as delta waves begin to emerge during stage 3 sleep. Stage 3 is a transitional period between light sleep and a very deep sleep. Stage 4 Stage 4 is sometimes referred to as delta sleep because of the slow brain waves known as delta waves that occur during this time. Stage 4 is a deep sleep that lasts for approximately 30 minutes. Bed-wetting and sleepwalking are most likely to occur at the end of stage 4 sleep. Stage 5 Most dreaming occurs during the fifth stage of sleep, known as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. REM sleep is characterized by eye movement, increased respiration rate and increased brain activity. REM sleep is also referred to as paradoxical sleep because while the brain and other body systems become more active, muscles become more relaxed. Dreaming occurs due because of increased brain activity, but voluntary muscles become paralyzed. ] (More)

What are the two common theories about dreams? Which of the two theories do you agree with?
