The Effects of Color Vs. Black-And-White on Information Processing

In this research, we examine the effects of color on information processing. Five studies show that people process the central elements of both color and black-and-white pictures spontaneously. However, color pictures draw a person’s attention to the peripheral elements of a picture as well, more so than black-and-white pictures.
