The Effect of Color on Memory Retention

Student: Duncan MacDougall

District/Region: Annapolis Valley Region

Event: 2013 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 12 - Central Kings Rural High School

I conducted a study examining the effects of color on short term and long term memory retention. Test subjects were gathered and were given various colored terms to study. After the time given, test subjects had their short and long term memory tested with a test. Results showed that colored terms were recalled more than the black terms.
