Abstract

ROBERT A. SCHNEIDER Department of Psychiatry, University o j Toronto, Canada Department of Medicine, University of Oklahoma School of Medicine PROBLEM The present investigation attempts to assess the physiological influence of color on emotions and awareness. The quality of affect was estimated by a ranking preferance technique and the levels of awareness by their equivalence with blood-oxygen saturation values@# l o * 12, l 3 v 14), both variables being considered in terms of res9, 11, ponse to a sequence of separately presented hues. The effects of color on healthy subjects were compared and contrasted with those on a group of psychiatric patients. EXPERIMENTAL METHODS The responses of 87 Ss. were investigated. Of this total, 49 were healthy controls (39 males and 10 females) with ages ranging from 18 to 45 years. The remaining 38 Ss. were a group of 21 male and 17 female psychiatric patients aged 16 to 62 years. They included 5 patients with neurosis, 4 with depression, 11 with schizophrenia, 6 with epilepsy and 12 with high-grade mental deficiency, An identical procedure was carried out on each subject in both groups.
