Cognitive neuroscience of emotional memory
Emotional events often attain a privileged status in memory. Cognitive neuroscientists have begun to elucidate the psychological and neural mechanisms underlying emotional retention advantages in theExpand

Human Amygdala Activation during Conditioned Fear Acquisition and Extinction: a Mixed-Trial fMRI Study
Echoplanar functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used in normal human subjects to investigate the role of the amygdala in conditioned fear acquisition and extinction. A simpleExpand

Hunger selectively modulates corticolimbic activation to food stimuli in humans.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to determine whether visual responses to food in the human amygdala and related corticolimbic structures would be selectively altered by changesExpand

A large-scale distributed network for covert spatial attention: further anatomical delineation based on stringent behavioural and cognitive controls.
Functional MRI was used to examine cerebral activations in 12 subjects while they performed a spatial attention task. This study applied more stringent behavioural and cognitive controls thanExpand

Remembering one year later: role of the amygdala and the medial temporal lobe memory system in retrieving emotional memories.
The memory-enhancing effect of emotion can be powerful and long-lasting. Most studies investigating the neural bases of this phenomenon have focused on encoding and early consolidation processes, andExpand

Brain Activity during Episodic Retrieval of Autobiographical and Laboratory Events: An fMRI Study using a Novel Photo Paradigm
Functional neuroimaging studies of episodic memory retrieval generally measure brain activity while participants remember items encountered in the laboratory (controlled laboratory condition) orExpand

Interaction between the Amygdala and the Medial Temporal Lobe Memory System Predicts Better Memory for Emotional Events
Emotional events are remembered better than neutral events possibly because the amygdala enhances the function of medial temporal lobe (MTL) memory system (modulation hypothesis). Although thisExpand

The spatiotemporal dynamics of autobiographical memory: neural correlates of recall, emotional intensity, and reliving.
We sought to map the time course of autobiographical memory retrieval, including brain regions that mediate phenomenological experiences of reliving and emotional intensity. Participants recalledExpand

A comparison of automated segmentation and manual tracing for quantifying hippocampal and amygdala volumes
We compare the performance of two popular and fully automated tools, FSL/FIRST and FreeSurfer, to expert hand tracing in the measurement of the hippocampus and amygdala. Expand

Dissociable effects of arousal and valence on prefrontal activity indexing emotional evaluation and subsequent memory: an event-related fMRI study
We investigated the effects of arousal and valence on emotional evaluation and emotional memory. Expand
