Academic sites

To experimental psychologists, motivation is the study of those factors influencing the direction, duration, and intensity of behavior. Emotion is related to evolution and cognition, the limbic system, and the need for adaptive social interaction. For practical tips about changing the direction and energy of your life activities, see Psych Web's listings of "All-purpose Self-Help sites" as well as the page of "Life Coaches and Professional Motivators."
