JUSTEL, Nadia; PSYRDELLIS, Mariana  and  RUETTI, Eliana. Modulation of emotional memory: a revision of the main factors which influence memories. Suma Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.2, pp.163-174. ISSN 0121-4381.

Emotions are closely linked to memory. Numerous studies indicate that (both positive and negative) emotional events are remembered more than neutral ones. Emotional memory is the result of storing the information that was accompanied by stressful factors through which the information is more easily fixed. Based on this background, the aim of this work is to review the main factors which modulate emotional memory consolidation in humans. Specifically, this paper seeks to analyze the influence of emotions and the alert state that a stressful situation produces on memory, as well as the neurobiological mechanisms involved in memories of emotionally significant situations.

Keywords : memory; emotions; modulation; human.
