Abstract

In applying psychological research to real-world situations, understanding the impact of positive affect as a cognitive moderator represents an important challenge. In this paper, we explore the cognitive mechanisms responsible for the improvements in performance and flexibility, in subjects performing a word fluency task. Moreover, a methodology with ACT-R is proposed, to describe the effect of positive affect on the word fluency task. The results show that simulated results of the computational model achieved by the proposed method were highly correlated with the average number and proportions of retrieved words from subjects on the word fluency task.
