Flashbulb Memory: (the good)
Emotions enhance memory
1.Generally: Neural structures responsible for emotion regulate behaviour,
e.g., Kluver-Bucy Syndrome
2. Immediate: help rev us up for fight or flight and recognize emotional cues
in the environment
3.Long-term: help us remember information important for survival and
reproduction
Flash bulb memory: richly detailed and very complete, accurate, immune to
forgetting.
Flashbulb memory: (the bad)
On sept 12, 2001, a group of 54 students answered questions about the
terrorist attacks and daily events in the days prior to sept 11
oFollow-up at 7, 42, and 224 days
For everyday memories, the vividness declines over time
For flashbulb memory, they remain vivid
Memories decline over time, even though we remain very confident
Vivid, but not very accurate, can forget
Flashbulb memory: (the dangerous)
What is the danger of emotional memories?
1. Its highly vivid and we think that they are right
Memories are organic and they change over time
E.g., Witnesses in a crime
Why is eyewitness testimony so poor?
1.Poor view
2.Dont know the significance at the time
