Mood is the state of mind or emotion. However, does mood affect learning and memory? I stumbled upon the question one day in my eight o’clock class completing an assignment on research questions. The only thing that I remembered from class is my teacher stating that learning is affected by one’s mood. Research has been researched on this topic in the past but in different forms. One of the articles that I found was about research on the Effects on Learning, Behavior, and Mood. The other article that is similar to my study is long-term effects of emotion and cognition. Most research shows in fact, mood does affect learning. Learning and memory occur more when one is happy or interested in what is being taught. My hypothesis is that mood does in fact affect learning.
