Abstract
Previous research addressed the role of human cognition in change blindness, but not yet the influence of mood on change blindness. The levels-of-focus hypothesis and attentional flexibility research support the hypothesis that a positive mood enhances detection of peripheral changes in a change blindness task. The conducted study revealed increased performance on peripheral changes for participants in a positive mood. Although the hypothesis that a positive mood leads to a broader visual attention focus or higher visual attentional flexibility was not supported, the results suggest that people in a positive mood rely more on the process of visual sensing.
