Résumé

This study explored the link between emotional state and attentional resources. A neutral or negative emotional state was induced in 50 subjects, then they performed a path-learning task followed by a word-memorization task while reproducing the prelearned path. Memory performance was assessed on a free-recall test. Analysis indicated that a previous induction of a negative emotional state disrupted path learning. Recall was not significantly affected by the subjects' emotional states, but recall was higher for subjects who had automatized the path prior to memorizing the words.
