Man is enjoying a day out, sees a free ice cream sign and decided to go get one, When walking he decided to go get some, when all of a sudden he sees a car speeding down an alley way not slowing down, is he gonna get hit!?!?!?
The Cannon- Bard theory of emotion
Step 1: Man goes to get free ice cream- car is heading his way and doesn't seam to be slowing down.
Free Ice cream
There is a car coming
Step 2: Car cause arousal and emotion- Man gets scared and runs.
Free Ice Cream
OH NO!!!! Its gonna hit me
After step 1: When seeing the car the eyes send signals to the brain of what is happening and your brain tells you to be scared and move
brain sends signals to bodies muscles
brain sends signals to bodies emotions.
I'm gonna get hit!!!
Body responds to what was concluded by the brain. Man turns around and runs!
