Emotion is the sensation of the enzymatic/biochemical secretion

  1. Dec 18, 2009 #1
    Emotion:

    Emotion is the sensation of the enzymatic/biochemical secretion pattern that selectively activate or suppress various parts of the brain, central nervous system to configure (mobilize) the body for a task. Each emotion promotes the effectiveness of a bodily, mental, or social function.

    Is this right?

    Some functions that emotion promote:
    o Fright: Submission
    o Anger: Aggression
    o Happiness: Availability
    o Jealousy: Competition
    o Sadness: Assitance
    o Bordom: Exploration
    o Depression: Isolation

    Why does an emotion like depression exist? What good is it to isolate?
