Textbook Chapter[edit]

This text book chapter is on motivation and arousal. By the end of this chapter it is expected that you will understand the mechanisms of arousal, the main theories or arousal (with focus on Drive Theory, and the Inverted ‘U’ Hypothesis) and the effects of insufficient stimulation and underarousal and excessive stimulation and overarousal. We will also briefly look at Sensation Seeking and whether or not you, or someone you know takes part in arousal seeking behaviours.
