Emotion affects virtually every aspect of our cognition from perception and attention to decision making and memory the present research investigates the neural mechanisms underlying the impact of emotion on perception and memory as studied with brain imaging tools in healthy human participants. Complementing our recent protocol 2 describing a method that allows investigation of the neural correlates of the memory enhancing effect of emotion see also 1 3 5 here we present a protocol that allows investigation of the neural correlates of the detrimental impact of emotion on cognition. A series of studies by dolcos and colleagues investigating the neural correlates of the response to emotional distraction identified dissociable patterns of brain activity in coldex vs hotemo systems which were specific to transient distracting emotions dolcos and mccarthy 2006 dolcos et al 2007 2008. The impact of emotion on memory evidence from brain imaging studies vdm verlag dr muller 2009 dolcos f denkova e neural correlates of encoding emotional memories a review of functional neuroimaging evidence. The present review discusses evidence from brain imaging studies investigating the neural correlates of the memory enhancing effect of emotion in healthy human participants the available evidence points to two main mechanisms
