Yellow is the first color distinguished in the brain and is often recommended for classrooms. Studies by Deborah Sharpe, author of The Psychology of Color and Design, found that the color yellow is connected with cheer, happiness, and fun. (Colby, Barbara, ASID. Color & Light: Influences and Impact. p 59. CA: Barbara Colby, 1990.)

Faber Birren in his book Color and Human Response, reports that in general yellow elicits positive moods while the color green is good for productivity and long-term energy. (Howard, Pierce, J. PhD. The Owner’s Manual for the Brain. p 703. GA: Bard Press, 2000.)
