Abstract

This study predicts that participants who experience the same mood during learning of words and during testing will recall more words from the list compared to those who do not experience the same mood during testing. Participants will include 10 males and 10 females. Placement in the control or experimental group will be random. The experimental group will be induced a mood, given a list of words to read, a distractor task, induced again, and then a test to see how many words they recall. Results will suggest that same mood at learning and testing will help recall more words.
