The effects of mood on emotion recognition and its relationship with the global vs local information processing styles

The study examined the effect of moods on emotion recognition and its relationship with the information processing styles. It was assumed that a positive mood promotes a global processing style, which is associated with more efficient emotion recognition. The eye movements were registered to measure global vs local processing style. The results suggest that people in a positive mood recognized joy expression slower than those did in a neutral mood. Processing style was not related to the speed of emotion recognition. The findings clarify about the mechanisms of efficient emotion recognition.
