Description

Hello, I have a psychology assignment which consists of answering questions on 2 topics with a total word count of 1600 words. The 2 topics I have chosen are reaction time and motivation and emotion. The questions have all been provided in the document I’m attaching with a template. For this assignment we need to use APA style guidelines (i.e., size 12 Times New Roman font, double-spaced) in a Word or PDF document and include a reference list using APA referencing style.BESC1490 Introduction to Psychology

reaction times in emergencies (i.e., the stopping of a car to avoid a child running onto
a road)?
Video showing impact of difference speeds:

5. Describe one factor (e.g., alcohol or fatigue etc.) that influences reaction times and
discuss its impact on everyday traffic decisions

Assignment 6: Motivation and Emotion
Task B: Written Assignment (~550 words)

View video on Professor Paul Ekman’s research on universality of emotions. Briefly
answer the following:
1. Define and explain the concept of emotion:
a. Explain and briefly summarise the 11 criteria associated with basic emotions
(note: you do not need to define all 11 criteria separately)
b. How did Ekman demonstrate that emotional expression was universal?
c. What are the six (now seven) core emotions?
From your reading on emotions, answer the following:
2. Is what is considered funny or sad or makes one angry universal or culturally
determined (i.e., are the same things considered funny or saddening in different parts
of the world)?
3. Is whether someone will publicly display an emotion e.g., show disgust or sadness
universal or culturally determined (i.e., does emotional expression differ in various
cultures or parts of the world). In your response, describe a study to illustrate that
people from some cultures may suppress displays of some emotions.
Task C. In approximately 250 words:
• Provide a brief and clear description [plus references] of the topic content
you wish to apply.
• Clearly apply some aspect of this topic’s material [Part A or Part B] to

Excellent response to key
requirements. Information presented
was relevant, accurate, and
described using objective evidence,
rather than subjective interpretation.
An articulate and comprehensive
evidence-based response to key
requirements was provided which
demonstrated excellent knowledge.
The responses were proportionate in
size and detail and supported by
high quality in-text referencing.

A good response to key requirements.
Sufficient detail was given with a
possible imbalance in focus,
insufficient/excessive detail in parts,
some irrelevant or missing
information, or the response included
some subjective interpretations not
supported by evidence (i.e., limited
intext referencing or lower quality
references were used to support
claims). Response demonstrated sound
knowledge of the topic content.
P

The response was inaccurate or
unclear. Important aspects were
omitted or covered insufficiently.
Responses may have been irrelevant
or evidence-based information was not
consulted (i.e., no in-text

the positive
consequences of the
application
2
Application to life was relevant to
the topic content. The application
was thoroughly and clearly
described, with reasoning for its
application clearly related to the
evidence-base. The positive
consequences and potential outcome
of the application were also clearly
described and critically analysed.
Application to life was relevant to the
topic content; but the evidence-base
used to support the application may
have been limited or out-dated. The
positive consequences and potential
outcome of the application were
described and justified but description
or critical analysis may have been
lacking detail or specificity.
No application provided, or
application was not relevant to the
topic content. Alternatively, where
application was provided it was not
credible or evidence-based for the
context. The application was not
described, or descriptions were
inadequate. There was no or limited
discussion of positive consequences
of application.
