The present study was designed to investigate the effects of color temperature of lighting sources on a contingent negative variation (CNV). Eleven male students (mean age, 23.2) volunteered as subjects. The CNV was recorded under three different color temperature conditions (3000 degrees K, 5000 degrees K and 7500 degrees K). The illuminance level was kept at 1000lx. The lighting condition caused no effect on the reaction time of the performance included in the CNV paradigm. On the other hand… CONTINUE READING
