Abstract: "The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different color combinations on length of attention, as measured by eye fixation habituation and amount of information gathered from stimuli, as determined by two cue-related tasks. Four treatments represented simulated environments of high saliency, low saliency, combination high and low saliency, and a control group. Subjects were assigned to one of the four groups with equal numbers of each sex and of high and low mental ages as measured byPeabody Picture Vocabulary Test. High mental age was arbitrarily designated as five years, and below that point mental ages were considered low.
