Effects of Proximity on the Cognitive Processing of Environmental News

Abstract:

To investigate the influence of physical proximity on the cognitive and affective processing of
environmental news stories, this study examined the physiological responses and cued recall to
environmental news stories on four different environmental issues. The results showed that high-proximity
environmental news stories elicited greater heart rate deceleration than low-proximity
ones. No significant effects were found for proximity on electrodermal activity. Additionally, no
significant effects were found for cued recall, suggesting only limited proximity effects on
arousal and retrieval of environmental news stories. These findings present a complex role for
proximity in the cognitive processing of news stories. Practical and theoretical implications are
discussed.
