Abstract : The effect of a visual environment typically used for research on performance indices was investigated. Two research rooms were identical except for the choice and placement of props, producing an attractive and an unattractive work environment (aesthetics). The subjects responded to a number of measures of task performance, varying from relatively simple to relatively complex. (Author)
