Abstract:

The objective of this research project was to investigate how emotion influences visual information processing and the neural correlates of the effects. Behavioral studies were proposed to address three issues. The first issue is related to the automaticity of processing task-irrelevant emotional features. The second issue is associated with the effect of positive affect on visual information processing and the third issue addresses the effect of capacity limitation on processing emotional information in a dynamic environment. The third issue was base on imaging experiments to understand the neural mechanisms of the impact of emotion on visual information processing. Progress is described.
