Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2014/Amygdala and emotion
Possibly other areas[edit source]
Hello, I was just wondering, other than the Amygdala which predominantly controls emotions; what other areas of the brain controls emotion? Or does the Amygdala play the only significant role? Just a though :) Good luck with your chapter! Pheonix (discuss • contribs) 11:34, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
The Amygdala plays a central role in fear. It is what can activate the fight or flight response. However many other parts of the brain can also effect emotions, such as the hippocampus and the hypothalamus. --[[User:Janed1987|Janed1987 (discuss • contribs) 08:19, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Hello, I just wanted to say that your book chapter is looking awesome! Great pictures! One tip I thought I mentioned is that James mentioned is that the use of coloured backgrounds behind the text can sometimes make the chapter hard to read. I was going to include them in my chapter but after talking to James I decided not too. However, I would talk to James before making your final decision. Hope that helps.

Heading casing[edit source]
|FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:|
Your page is looking great!.
I've just made a little change (a capital in one citation).
I've just noted a couple of things:
I wondered if in your last paragraph under What is Amygdala if it would be better to move the second line first.
In your first introduction of the Amygdala catergories you've used capitals for their names, but not under The Amygdala's Role in Fear Conditioning. It is probably best you're consistent in either using caps or not.
You might want to review your headings - we need to use wiki formatting, which is not all caps.
In the case of PTSD - I think once you've abbreviated it you can stick with the abbreviation. Maybe in the case of the headings you would use the full term, and then abbreviate it in the first instance within the paragraph, and in subsequent use of the term.
Under What is Phobias? you've said 'often disrupting every day-to-day life'. I think 'every' may be superfluous in this case.
I changed 'difficulty to recognise' to 'difficult to recongise'. Hope that's ok.
Also, I think et al is always 'et al.', so in citations it's xx et al., I've corrected a couple, but you might want to do a through check.
Where you've inserted the date for Charles Darwin's work - I don't think you need to put the 1872 in unless you're referencing his work directly (which would be pretty cool). If you got the info from Matsumoto et al. then you would only use that citation.
You might want to double check your citations. I noticed in Universal Facial Expressions you cited 'Matsumoto, & Hwang, 2011'. I don't think you need the comma after Matsumoto. This may only be for this author, it didn't jump out at me elsewhere.
Lastly - I'm pretty sure the guidelines include a conclusion. So you might want to do a little summary.
Other than that, it looks great and reads well. You've done a great job!
Heading names[edit source]
I suggest using the standard headings as described here Motivation and emotion/Assessment/Chapter#Written expression. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 09:51, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
I recommend using APA style captions i.e., Figure 1, Figure 2 etc. for all images, graphs etc. and Table 1, Table 2 etc. for all tables. The caption text should not be in italics. For more detail and examples, see http://libguides.newcastle.edu.au/content.php?pid=113807&sid=1208571 -- Jtneill - Talk - c 10:55, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
Quick Edit[edit source]
Hey, fixed the lowercase on your "Phobias" heading, the p was lowercase. Also, I linked to your chapter from mine since I mentioned the Amygdala and thought it would be a good bridge. I also fixed the order of PTSD section title as it was PSTD on the page.U3054842 (discuss • contribs) 02:36, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
