Hannah Bauss Psy 329 5/19/09 Research Experiment Introduction There have been many studies and a great amount of research done on global vs. local processing and mood. Some research has also examined the relationship between the two and how they affect each other. But there have not been any studies that have looked to see if scene perception translates into scene production. Mood can be defined as a relatively long-lasting, affective or emotional state and are usually positive or negative. Moods can last for several hours or a few days, unlike emotions which last for minutes only or states which last for months or years. It has been proved that people can self-regulate and make judgments about their moods (Mayer, Salovey, Gomberg- Kaufman, & Blainey, 1991). Nolen-Hoeksema (1991) also revealed that there are certain gender differences in mood regulation; one being that women are more likely to suffer from depression. Differences have also been discovered in how men and women differ in dealing with stress or depression. Women are more likely to use food (Forster & Jeffery, 1986; Grunberg & Straub, 1992) or seek social interaction (Amirkan, 1990; Flaherty & Richman, 1989; Houtman, 1990) whereas men are more likely to turn to drugs and alcohol (Richman & Flaherty, 1986; Berkowitz & Perkins, 1987; Engs & Hanson, 1990) to cope with stress or depression. Thayer, Newman, and McClain (1994) showed that there is major overlap between methods used to change a bad mood and methods to reduce tension or raise energy, with exercise, music, and social interaction
