What is it about?

Most things in life are forgotten. Emotional stimulation can improve the storage of memory, which helps people to selectively build lasting memories of important experiences. Nervous system-mediated emotional arousal and memory are very closely linked. The adrenaline and corticosterone released during emotional stimulation can regulate the consolidation of long-term memory. The amygdala plays a key role in regulating the effects of these stress hormones on the body. Stress-induced activation of the amygdala and its interaction with other relevant brain regions that process memory are the key to ensuring that emotionally meaningful experiences are remembered.■
