Mood changes your vi­sion

Science Illustrated - - SENSES -

Your day be­comes more grey, if you are in a bad mood. Ac­cord­ing to a study by the Univer­sity of Rochester, New York, peo­ple in a bad mood find it more dif­fi­cult to de­code blue and yel­low colours than peo­ple in a neu­tral or good mood. Other stud­ies have found a con­nec­tion be­tween our con­cep­tion of those colours and the dopamine neu­ro­trans­mit­ter. So, sci­en­tists hope that the new re­sults can pro­vide us with a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the brain’s dopamine sig­nals.

Your colour vi­sion changes, when you are in a bad mood, ac­cord­ing to new re­search.
