Another prominent theory of arousal is commonly known as inverted U theory, and was developed by Yerkes and Dodson in 1908 (Kerr, 2014).
Indices for each arousal type were calculated by summing the numbers of each particular arousal and dividing these sums by hours of total sleep time: ARtotI = total arousals/total sleep time, respiratory arousal index (RAI) = respiratory arousals/total sleep time, limb arousal index (LAI) = limb arousals/total sleep time, and spontaneous arousal index (SAI) = spontaneous arousals/total sleep time.
Five models were proposed for modeling emotions from Arousal and Valence: a model to determine the strongest emotion that is felt by the person (called the Strongest Emotion model and based on a model used by Mandryk and Atkins to determine emotions while playing an interactive game), a Mamdani's model and a Takagi-Sugeno's model (both called a rule-based FIS because of the structure of their respective rules), which calculates the angle and the intensity of the emotion and two ANFIS using a grid partition and a fuzzy clustering technique.

According to alcohol expectancy theory (Stein, Goldman, & Del Boca, 2000), alcohol expectancy refers to memory associations related to anticipated effects after alcohol use, and this expectancy influences the pattern of drinking behavior by activating automatic affective processes, which include a valence dimension (positive and negative) and an arousal dimension (high and low).
Furthermore, cognitive appraisal seems to influence mood responses to music (Stratton & Zalanowski, 1991) and music and painting appear to be effective for the induction of basic emotions (happiness, sadness, fear, anger and peace) in adults and can be judged according to pleasantness and arousal (Juslin & Sloboda, 2010; Kreutz, Ott, Teichmann, Osawa, & Vaitl, 2008).
