3. Short term stress...?

  • Selectively impairs some tasks e.g STM but not others e.g stroop task
  • Does not impair memory performance. Only long term stress causes problems
  • Always improves performance
  • Impairs all cognitive processes

4. Stimulus of the amygdala AFTER encoding...

  • Facilitates hippocampus consolidation
  • Increases empathy
  • Decreases activation in other emotion areas

  • Better recall of highly arousing images but no differences between positive and negative. 1 year later, highly arousing best recalled
  • Better recall of highly arousing images and positive recalled better than negative. 1 year later, highly arousing positive best recalled
