Detenber, Benjamin H.; Reeves, Byron
Journal of Communication, v46 n3 p66-84 Sum 1996
Argues that the human brain is not specialized to deal with 20th-century media. Measures effects of image size and motion on college students' emotional responses. Finds that image size positively affects the arousal and dominates dimensions of emotional responses, but has no significant effect on valance evaluations. Finds that still pictures generated more arousal than moving pictures. (SR)
