  • Chapter 12 Motivation and Emotion Table of Contents Exit
  • Defining Motivation, and a Model Dynamics of behavior that initiate, sustain, direct, and terminate actions Model of how motivated activities work Need: Internal deficiency; causes drive  Drive: Energized motivational state (e.g., hunger, thirst; activates a response)  Response: Action or series of actions designed to attain a goal  Goal: Target of motivated behavior  Table of Contents Exit
  • Types of Motives Incentive Value: Goal’s appeal beyond its ability to fill a need Primary Motive: Innate (inborn) motives based on biological needs that must be met to survive Stimulus Motive: Needs for stimulation and information; appear to be innate, but not necessary for survival Secondary Motive: Based on learned needs, drives, and goals Table of Contents Exit
  • Hunger Homeostasis: Body equilibrium; balance Hypoglycemia: Low blood sugar Hypothalamus: Brain structure; regulates many aspects of motivation and emotion, including hunger, thirst, and sexual behavior Feeding System: Area in the hypothalamus that, when stimulated, initiates eating Satiety System: Area in the hypothalamus that terminates eating Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.1 Needs and incentives interact to determine drive strength (above). (a) Moderate need combined with a high-incentive goal produces a strong drive. (b) Even when a strong need exists, drive strength may be moderate if a goal’s incentive value is low. It is important to remember, however, that incentive value lies “in the eye of the beholder.” Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.2 In Cannon’s early study of hunger, a simple apparatus was used to simultaneously record hunger pangs and stomach contractions. (After Cannon, 1934.) Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.3 Location of the hypothalamus in the human brain. Table of Contents Exit
  • More on Eating Behavior (Hungry Yet?) Neuropeptide Y (NPY): Substance in the brain that initiates eating Glucagon-like Peptide 1 (GLP-1): Substance in brain that terminates eating Set Point: Proportion of body fat that is maintained by changes in hunger and eating; point where weight stays the same when you make no effort to gain or lose weight Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.4 This is a cross section through the middle of the brain (viewed from the front of the brain). Indicated areas of the hypothalamus are associated with hunger and the regulation of body weight. Table of Contents Exit
  • The Final Word on Eating Behavior Leptin: Substance released by fat cells that inhibits eating; presently being studied for possible importance in controlling and losing weight External Eating Cues: External stimuli that tend to encourage hunger or elicit eating; these cues may cause you to eat even if you are stuffed (like Homer Simpson, who eats whatever he sees!) Table of Contents Exit
  • Behavioral Dieting Weight reduction based on changing exercise and eating habits and not on temporary self-starvation Some keys  Start with a complete physical  Exercise  Be committed to weight loss Table of Contents Exit
  • Behavioral Dieting (cont.) Observe yourself, keep an eating diary, and keep a chart of daily progress Eat based on hunger, not on taste or learned habits that tell you to always clean your plate Avoid snacks Learn to weaken personal eating cues Table of Contents Exit
  • Taste Taste Aversion: Active dislike for a particular food  VERY difficult to overcome Bait Shyness: Unwillingness or hesitation by animals to eat a particular food Table of Contents Exit
  • Eating Disorders: Anorexia Nervosa Active self-starvation or sustained loss of appetite that seems to have psychological origins  Control issues seem to be involved  Very difficult to effectively treat  Affects adolescent females overwhelmingly Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.6 Women with abnormal eating habits were asked to rate their body shape on a scale similar to the one you see here. As a group, they chose ideal figures much thinner than what they thought their current weights were. (Most women say they want to be thinner than they currently are, but to a lesser degree than women with eating problems.) Notice that the women with eating problems chose an ideal weight that was even thinner than what they thought men prefer. This is not typical of most women. In this study, only women with eating problems wanted to be thinner than what they thought men find attractive (Zellner, Harner, & Adler, 1989). Table of Contents Exit
  • Eating Disorders: Bulimia Nervosa (Binge-Purge Syndrome) Excessive eating usually followed by self-induced vomiting and/or taking laxatives  Difficult to treat  Prozac approved by FDA to treat bulimia nervosa Affects females overwhelmingly Table of Contents Exit
  • Causes of Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa Anorectics and bulimics have exaggerated fears of becoming fat; they think they are fat when the opposite is true! Bulimics are obsessed with food and weight; anorectics with perfect control Anorectics will often be put on a “weight-gain” diet to restore weight Table of Contents Exit
  • CNN – Enjoying Anorexia Table of Contents Exit
  • Thirst and Pain Extracellular Thirst: When water is lost from fluids surrounding the cells of the body Intracellular Thirst: When fluid is drawn out of cells because of increased concentration of salts and minerals outside the cell  Best satisfied by drinking water Pain Avoidance: An episodic drive  Occurs in distinct episodes when bodily damage takes place or is about to occur Table of Contents Exit
  • Sex Drive Estrus: Changes in animals that create a desire for sex; females in heat Estrogen: A female sex hormone Androgens: Male hormones Non-homeostatic: Independent of bodily need states Table of Contents Exit
  • Stimulus Drives Reflect needs for information, exploration, manipulation, and sensory input Yerkes-Dodson Law: If a task is simple, it is best for arousal to be high; if it is complex, lower levels of arousal provide for the best performance  Arousal Theory: Ideal levels of activation occur for various activities Arousal: Activation of the body and nervous system Sensation Seeking: Trait of people who prefer high levels of stimulation (e.g., the contestants on “EcoChallenge” and “Fear Factor”) Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.7 Monkeys happily open locks that are placed in their cage. Since no reward is given for this activity, it provides evidence for the existence of stimulus needs. (Photo courtesy of Harry F. Harlow.) Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.8 (a) The general relationship between arousal and efficiency can be described by an inverted U curve. The optimal level of arousal or motivation is higher for a simple task (b) than for a complex task (c). Table of Contents Exit
  • How to Cope With Test Anxiety Preparation Relaxation Rehearsal Restructuring thoughts Table of Contents Exit
  • Circadian Rhythms Cyclical changes in bodily functions and arousal levels that vary on a 24 hour schedule Preadaptation: Gradual matching of sleepwaking cycles to a new time schedule before an anticipated circadian rhythm change  E.g. trying to adjust to new time zone to avoid jet lag Melatonin: Hormone produced by pineal gland in response to light (production suppressed) and dark (production increased) Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.9 Core body temperature is a good indicator of a person’s circadian rhythm. Most people reach a low point 2 to 3 hours before their normal waking time. It’s no wonder that both the Chernobyl and three-Mile Island nuclear power plant accidents occurred around 4 am. Rapid travel to a different time zone, shift work, depression, and illness can throw sleep and waking patterns out of synchronization with the body’s core rhythm. Mismatches of this kind are very disruptive (Hauri & Linde, 1990). Table of Contents Exit
  • Jet Lag Disturbed body rhythms caused by rapid travel east or west Major time shifts (5 hours or more) can cause very slow adaptation Direction of travel affects adaptation, and thus, severity of jet lag MUCH easier to go east to west than west to east  Preadaptation: Gradual matching of sleep-waking cycles to a new time schedule  Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.10 Time required to adjust to air travel across six time zones. The average time to resynchronize was shorter for westbound travel than for eastbound flights. (Data from Beljan et al., 1972; cited by Moore-Ede et al., 1982). Table of Contents Exit
  • Learned Motives Opponent Process Theory: Strong emotions tend to be followed by an opposite state; strength of both emotional states over time Social Motives: Acquired by growing up in a particular society or culture Need for Achievement: Desire to meet some internal standard of excellence Need for Power: Desire to have social impact or control over others Table of Contents Exit
  • Abraham Maslow and Needs Hierarchy of Human Needs: Maslow’s ordering of needs based on presumed strength or potency; some needs are more powerful than others and thus will influence your behavior to a greater degree Basic Needs: First four levels of needs in Maslow’s hierarchy  Lower needs tend to be more potent (“prepotent”) than higher needs Growth Needs: Higher-level needs associated with self-actualization Meta-Needs: Needs associated with impulses for self-actualization Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.12 Maslow believed that lower needs in the hierarchy are dominant. Basic needs must be satisfied before growth motives are fully expressed. Desires for self-actualization are reflected in various meta-needs. Table of Contents Exit
  • Types of Motivation Intrinsic Motivation: Motivation coming from within, not from external rewards; based on personal enjoyment of a task Extrinsic Motivation: Based on obvious external rewards, obligations, or similar factors Table of Contents Exit
  • Emotions State characterized by physiological arousal and changes in facial expressions, gestures, posture, and subjective feelings Adaptive Behaviors: Aid our attempts to survive and adjust to changing conditions Physiological Changes: Include heart rate, blood pressure, perspiration, and other bodily responses Table of Contents Exit
  • More Emotions Adrenaline: Hormone produced by adrenal glands that arouses the body Emotional Expression: Outward signs of what a person is feeling Emotional Feelings: Private emotional experience Table of Contents Exit
  • Primary Emotions and Mood Eight primary emotions (Plutchik, 2001)  Fear  Surprise  Sadness  Disgust Table of Contents Exit
  • Primary Emotions and Mood (cont.)  Anger  Anticipation  Joy  Trust Mood: Low-intensity, long-lasting emotional state Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.13 Primary and mixed emotions. In Robert Plutchik’s model there are eight primary emotions, as listed in the inner areas. Adjacent emotions may combine to give the emotions listed around the perimeter. Mixtures involving more widely separated emotions are also possible. For example, fear plus anticipation produces anxiety. (Adapted from Plutchik, 2001.) Table of Contents Exit
  • Brain and Emotion Amygdala: Part of limbic system that produces fear responses Autonomic Nervous System (ANS): Neural system that connects brain with internal organs and glands Sympathetic Branch: Part of ANS that activates body for emergency action Parasympathetic Branch: Part of ANS that quiets body and conserves energy  Parasympathetic Rebound: Overreaction to intense emotion Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.15 An amygdala can be found buried within the temporal lobes on each side of the brain. The amygdala appears to provide “quick and dirty” processing of emotional stimuli that allows us to act involuntarily to danger. Table of Contents Exit
  • CNN – Mood Chemicals Table of Contents Exit
  • Lie Detectors Polygraph: Device that records heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, and galvanic skin response (GSR); lie detector GSR: Measures sweating Irrelevant Questions: Neutral, nonthreatening, nonemotional questions in a polygraph test Relevant Questions: Questions to which only someone guilty should react Control Questions: Questions that almost always provoke anxiety in a polygraph (e.g. “Have you ever taken any office supplies?”) Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.17 A typical polygraph includes devices for measuring heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, and galvanic skin response. Pens mounted on the top of the machine make a record of bodily responses on a moving strip of paper. (right) Changes in the area marked by the arrow indicate emotional arousal. If such responses appear when a person answers a question, he or she may be lying, but other causes of arousal are also possible. Table of Contents Exit
  • Body Language (Kinesics) Study of communication through body movement, posture, gestures, and facial expressions Emotional Tone: Underlying emotional state Facial Blends: Mix of two or more basic expressions Table of Contents Exit
  • Three Types of Facial Expressions Pleasantness-Unpleasantness: Degree to which a person is experiencing pleasure or displeasure Attention-Rejection: Degree of attention given to a person or object Activation: Degree of arousal a person is experiencing Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.18 When shown groups of simplified faces (without labels) the angry and scheming faces “jumped out” at people faster than sad, happy, or neutral faces. An ability to rapidly detect threatening expressions probably helped our ancestors survive (adapted from Tipples, Atkinson & Young, 2002). Table of Contents Exit
  • Detecting Lies Illustrators: Gestures people use to illustrate what they are saying Emblems: Gestures that have widely understood meanings within a particular culture Table of Contents Exit
  • Theories of Emotion James-Lange Theory: Emotional feelings follow bodily arousal and come from awareness of such arousal Cannon-Bard Theory: The thalamus (in brain) causes emotional feelings and bodily arousal at the same time Schachter’s Cognitive Theory: Emotions occur when a label is applied to general physical arousal Attribution: Mental process of assigning causes to events; attributing arousal to a certain source Facial Feedback Hypothesis: Sensations from facial expressions and becoming aware of them is what leads to the emotion someone feels Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.21 Theories of emotion. Table of Contents Exit
  • A Modern View of Emotion Emotional Appraisal: Evaluating personal meaning of a stimulus Emotional Intelligence: Combination of skills, including empathy, self-control, and selfawareness; includes: Self-awareness  Empathy  Managing, understanding, and using emotions  Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.23 A contemporary model of emotion. Table of Contents Exit
  • Nature of Love Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love: Love is made up of intimacy, passion, and commitment Intimacy: Affection, sharing, support, and communication in a relationship Passion: High levels of physical arousal in a relationship, especially sexual Commitment: Decision to love and stay with another person Infatuation: Passion without commitment or intimacy Table of Contents Exit
  • Fig. 12.24 Sternberg’s triangular theory of love. Table of Contents Exit
  • Types of Love Liking: Intimacy without passion or commitment Romantic Love: Intimacy plus passion Fatuous Love: Passion with commitment, but lacking intimacy Infatuation: Passion without commitment or intimacy Table of Contents Exit
  • More Types of Love Companionate Love: Intimacy and commitment without passion Empty Love: Commitment without intimacy or passion Consummate Love: Passion, intimacy, and commitment Table of Contents Exit
