On the basis of recent evidence indicating a sex-related lateralization of amygdala function in memory for emotional events, together with substantial evidence suggesting hemispheric specialization in processing global (central) versus local (detail) aspects of a situation, and the established dependence of the amygdala s memory modulating function on b-adrenergic receptor activation, we predicted differential effects of a b-adrenergic receptor antagonist (propranolol) on long-term memory for… CONTINUE READING
