Electrophysiological Correlates of Emotion-Induced Recognition Bias

  title={Electrophysiological Correlates of Emotion-Induced Recognition Bias},
  author={Sabine Windmann and Marta Kutas},
  journal={Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience},
The question of how emotions influence recognition memory is of interest not only within basic cognitive neuro-science but from clinical and forensic perspectives as well. Emotional stimuli can induce at recognition bias such that individuals are more likely to respond old to a negative item than to an emotionally neutral item, whether the item is actually old or new. We investigated this bias using event-related brain potential (ERP) measures by comparing the processing of words given old… CONTINUE READING
