dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of emotional arousal on memory. In part one the list wise directed forgetting (DF) method was used to investigate the long term effects of attempting to suppress emotionally arousing pictures. The participants were tested on two occasions, one week apart. The first test session replicated the findings in Payne and Corrigan (2007), with no DF effect being found. No DF effect was found on the second test, either, but a significant list difference was found, with lower means on list 2, than list 1. There were no group differences at any stage of the experiment. In addition the negative pictures were remembered better than the positive and neutral. Suppression of emotionally arousing stimuli may thus seem to be difficult. Part two was an attempt to assess memory quality, by asking participants to describe some of the pictures in detail. Memory for list 1 pictures, which were better remembered after a week, was less erroneous, than memory for list 2 pictures. Memory for positive pictures was less erroneous than for the negative and neutral. In addition an attempt to create memory errors was made, by presenting false titles of different valences. Valence did not matter. Error rates were the same for the negative, positive, and neutral title. Over all, memory errors were quite common. There was no group difference for this tendency either.eng
