Cannon–Bard Theory was the opposite of James–Lange theory. Walter Cannon , and later Philip Bard, argued the conscious emotional experience can be divorced from bodily sensation or expression. Although today most scientists agree that there is a correspondence between cognitive experience of emotion and sensory experience, types of emotion, emotional intensity, and individual variation appear to vary considerably. Cannon-Bard theory states that activity in the thalamus causes emotional feelings and bodily arousal to occur simultaneously. (See Cannon-Bard Theory of Emotion)
