Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Caffeine and emotion

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Hi, My chapter is on nicotine and emotion. Caffeine is a stimulant, so I wonder how it effect emotion? Does it inhibit aggressive behaviours/emotions? Is caffeine shown to improve attention/focus? Do different caffeine products have differing effects? eg. Coffee vs. energy drinks etc. How does caffeine effect children? Or even animals? Theres that picture online of a spider that created a crazy web while under influence of caffeine. Another thing you could research is Caffeine addiction replacing other drug or alcohol addictions. Often addicts will replace amphetamines or other stimulants with significantly high daily doses of caffeine during detox stages. What do you think? Hope these questions can help you!

Best of luck! PatrickBateman (discusscontribs) 03:31, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

A nicely presented chapter, which could be improved by adopting a more practical focus. Nice job!


While some constructs are embedded, there is no direct reference to theory throughout this chapter. Caffine and emotion is certainly a difficult topic in terms of theory, however there may be some which overlap. Theories of emotion could also be incorporated.


Research is explored particularly well. Explanations are presented in a way that is interesting and appropriate for the target audience. There is also some evidence of critical thinking, so well done.

Written expression[edit]

The presentation and structure of this chapter are both well done. Some sentences are too long and may cause confusion (particularly towards the beginning). To improve further, adopt a more practical focus - the topic lends itself particularly well to this. The inclusion of a quiz or exercise may be useful. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)

This is a nice summary of chapter content - well done!

Structure and content[edit]

Key concepts from the chapter are discussed. Theory and research are incorporated throughout. The flow is quite clear.


Ideas are communicated clearly and confidently through voice. Well done for including some creative elements. I would encourge you to work on creating a clearer flow between sections (e.g. flow from powerpoint to video). In some sections, the visuals did not directly relate to the dialogue, particularly at the end of the presentation.

Production quality[edit]

Picture and sound quality are good. Basic production tools are well used. The presentation appears to have been quite well prepared. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)
