Emotion suppression reduces hippocampal activity during successful memory encoding
People suppressing their emotions while facing an emotional event typically remember it less well. However, the neural mechanisms underlying the impairing effect of emotion suppression on successful memory encoding are not well understood. Because successful memory encoding relies on the hippocampus and the amygdala, we hypothesized that memory impairments due to emotion suppression are associated with down-regulated activity in these brain areas. 59 healthy females were instructed either todoi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2012.07.007 pmid:22796982 fatcat:nm327k5fwvhu5kttk45kdrxfj4
