Want to see the colors of emotions?

Recruiting preschool/kindergarten aged children (3 to 6 years old) within a two hour radius from Moscow. We are interested in how the color of a learning environment contributes to young children's emotions and academic performance.

These findings will help us understand how color perception is associated with emotional state, and how this association may impact children's self-regulation and cognitive performance. This study is funded by the Mountain West Clinical Translational Research Infrastructure Network.
