Abstract

Abstract Rationale. Animal and human studies lend support to the hypothesis that enhanced memory associated with emotional experiences involves activation of the beta-adrenergic system. Evidence for the role of noradrenaline in emotional memory in humans has been gathered from experimental studies where blockade of the beta-adrenergic system with a beta… (More)
