The present study examined the effect of an experimentally induced mood state on student pilot learning for ground school- related information. The findings from this study supported the research mat has been done in the past on negative mood and memory (Leigh & Ellis, 1981). Furthermore, the researchers showed support for the hypothesis that a negative mood state will cause a decrement in memory performance for student pilots who are attempting to remember ground-based material. Although further research needs to be done in this area, evidence has shown that a negative mood state will decrease student pilot memory ability.
