An examination of the inverted-U curve : a behavioural and a physiological approach
According to activation theory, there is a continuum of "activation", i.e. greater and lesser degrees of neural activity extending from the reticular formation to the cortex, to the spinal cord and to the periphery, e.g. the autonomic nervous system. Increases in activation produce an inverted-U change, i.e. a sequence of improvement and impairment, in behaviour. Chapter 1 reviews the evidence in support of activation theory. In infra-human species, physiological studies tend to substantiate...[Show more]
