Abstract There is limited evidence on the influence of affective stimuli on auditory working memory. The reported study investigated whether emotional auditory words interfere with ongoing auditory processing of words in auditory working memory. On each trial, words with negative, neutral, and positive affective valence were simultaneously presented on three different speakers. Participants recalled the word presented from the centre speaker first and then recalled the words presented from the… Expand
How Does Allocation of Emotional Stimuli Impact Working Memory Tasks? An Overview
TLDR
Different effects of emotional stimuli for updating tasks are found, in which verbal modality seems to be impaired regardless of the emotional valence used compared to neutral stimuli, and visual updating processes appear to be improved by emotional stimuli as the targets of the task, and emotional words improved interference resolution performance.

The Impact of Affective Information on Working Memory: A Pair of Meta-Analytic Reviews of Behavioral and Neuroimaging Evidence
TLDR
It is suggested that affective WM capacity may be a transdiagnostic mechanism associated with poor mental health and the importance of integrating behavioral and neural levels of analysis is highlighted. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest why affective valence effects on working memory have not been found in previous research and suggest why switching cost is a function of an anxiety-related attention bias. Expand
A facilitative effect of negative affective valence on working memory.
TLDR
It was found that negative cues yielded shorter response times (RTs) in the attention-shift condition and longer RTs in the Attention-stay condition, compared with neutral and positive cues. Expand
Emotional Arousal Can Impair Feature Binding in Working Memory
TLDR
The findings suggest that arousal (and perhaps negative valence for depressed people) recruits attention to items thereby disrupting working memory processes that help bind features together. Expand
Emotional interference in enumeration: A working memory perspective
We investigated the influence of emotional stimuli on enumeration. On each trial a set of 1 to 10 affectively positive, negative or neutral words were presented for 200 ms each. Participants countedExpand
Do threatening stimuli draw or hold visual attention in subclinical anxiety?
TLDR
It is concluded that threat-related stimuli affect attentional dwell time and the disengage component of attention, leaving the question of whether threat stimuli affect the shift component of Attention open to debate. Expand
Saying it with feeling: neural responses to emotional vocalizations
TLDR
That processing of vocal emotion involves a bilaterally distributed network of brain regions and that processing of fear-related auditory stimuli involves context-specific interactions between the amygdala and other cortical and brainstem regions implicated in fear processing is demonstrated. Expand
Brain Systems Mediating Cognitive Interference by Emotional Distraction
TLDR
These results provide the first direct evidence that the detrimental effect of emotional distracters on ongoing cognitive processes entails the interaction between a dorsal neural system associated with “cold” executive processing and a ventral system associatedwith “hot” emotional processing. Expand
Lesions of the human amygdala impair enhanced perception of emotionally salient events
TLDR
Under conditions of limited attention for normal perceptual awareness, it is shown that healthy observers demonstrate robust benefits for the perception of verbal stimuli of aversive content compared with stimuli of neutral content. Expand
Impaired auditory recognition of fear and anger following bilateral amygdala lesions
TLDR
A further investigation is reported of one of these rare cases, a woman who has impaired perception of the intonation patterns that are essential to the perception of vocal affect, despite normal hearing, which shows that the amygdala's role in the recognition of certain emotions is not confined to vision, which is consistent with its being involved in the appraisal of danger and the emotion of fear.

Neurophysiological mechanisms of auditory selective attention in humans.
TLDR
This chapter proposes an adaptive filtering mechanism for selective auditory attention that can be flexibly and dynamically tuned depending on the attentional demand. Expand
