Physiological hyperarousal is an aspect of human experience relating to emotion and anxiety. It has been thought of as transient and as an individual difference characteristic relating to the way people experience emotion. Its history, measurement, and relationship to other constructs are examined.

Thayer and colleagues considered arousal to be a basic element of mood and behavior, with distinctions between energetic and tense arousal.
