Emotion and Motivation
For our benchmark, the topics we chose were emotions and motivation. In this, we researched how emotions have an effect on the brain, neurotransmitters, homeostasis and what specific parts are affected by different types of emotion like joy or sadness. We learned there are many parts that are affected but one specifically is the Limbic System, a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain, involving several areas near the edge of the cortex concerned with instinct and mood. It controls basic emotions (fear, pleasure, anger).
