Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering an introduction to motivational theories and motivation for hunger drive. This would probably best be used in a Motivation and Emotion unit in a Psychology or AP Psychology course.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is designed to capture student attention. Each slide has transitions along with rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Topics covered include:
-- Instinct Theory and the Evolutionary Perspective
-- Drive-Reduction Theory (w/ homeostasis and "push" and "pull" factors)
-- Arousal Theory and the Yerkes-Dodson Law
-- Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
-- Stomach Contractions and their connection to hunger
-- Blood Sugar Glucose and Diabetes
-- Brain Basis of Hunger (lateral/ventromedial hypothalamus)
-- Stomach Hormones
-- Set Point Theory and Metabolism
-- Hunger and Culture
-- Eating Disorders (Bulimia and Anorexia)
Please note that the fonts "Tekton Pro" and "Nyala" are used in these documents. If your computer does not have these fonts installed, it will automatically replace them with a default font, which will cause it to look different than the screenshots indicated and require you to re-format the slides.
Please also note that this PowerPoint may contain links to outside websites or videos for additional content to expand upon topics. At the time of this posting, all links have been verified and are working, but I cannot predict when web addresses may change or be removed. If you notice a link not working, please let me know and I will rectify it.
