Do Emotions Facilitate Integration During Reading?

EasyChair Preprint no. 3845

9 pagesDate: July 12, 2020


This project examined how positive versus negative emotions influenced integration and memory for text. This study utilized an emotion induction procedure followed by an experimental reading task from O’Brien and Cook’s inconsistency paradigm (2014). The results replicated traditional inconsistency effects. In addition, positive emotions had a delayed facilitative effect on integration during reading. After reading, positively induced participants were more likely to comment on the inconsistency during immediate recall, but less likely during delayed recall.
