One of two emotional valence positive or negative images and twoarousal high or low images was presented for 500 ms to participants. Afterthe image vanished from the screen, a letter was presented in the centralvisual field, while a number was also presented in one of the peripheral visualfields upper right, upper left, bottom right, and bottom left. There werefour conditions of degree of eccentricity of the presented number. Theparticipants identified both the letter and number simultaneously. Bycalculating the correct performance rate of the peripheral identification task,the range of the useful field of view UFOV was speculated. Results showed that performancerates of the central and peripheral tasks were worse for the high arousal,negative emotion stimuli compared with the other three conditions. Moreover,performance rates of the peripheral task were better for the positive emotionconditions than those for the negative emotion conditions when the stimuluseccentricities were 3 or 12 degrees. We concluded that the range of the UFOV couldbe affected by the interaction between the emotional valence and arousal levelof visual stimuli. This study was the first report that emotional valence andarousal level interacted each other and did affect our human visual cognition.
