A new study published in the Psychological Science journal has found a relationship between a person’s emotions and ability to perceive colour.
Lead author Christopher Thorstenson, a psychologist at the University of Rochester said “Color is such an important part of our experience.
“We know dopamine is important in mood disorders like depression and ADHD, but there might be something going on with how dopamine affects how we see colors, too.
“How we feel can really influence how we see the world around us.”
The research discovered that sad people had a hard time differentiating between shades along the blue-yellow color axis but they did not have a problem seeing colors in the red-green spectrum.
