    Disentangling the Effects of Arousal and Valence on Memory for Intrinsic Details.Mara Mather & Matthew Sutherland - 2009 - Emotion Review 1 (2):118-119.
    Kensinger (2009) and Mather (2007) both argue that intrinsic features of emotional items are remembered better than intrinsic features of non-emotional items. However, Kensinger attributes these effects to negative valence whereas Mather attributes them to arousal. In this paper, we note several reasons why arousal may be the driving factor even when a study reveals more detailed memory for negative items than for positive items. We also reanalyze previous data (Mather & Nesmith, 2008) to show that although both arousal and (...)

    Arousal (but not valence) amplifies the impact of salience.Matthew R. Sutherland & Mara Mather - 2017 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (3):616-622.
    Previous findings indicate that negative arousal enhances bottom-up attention biases favouring perceptual salient stimuli over less salient stimuli. The current study tests whether those effects were driven by emotional arousal or by negative valence by comparing how well participants could identify visually presented letters after hearing either a negative arousing, positive arousing or neutral sound. On each trial, some letters were presented in a high contrast font and some in a low contrast font, creating a set of targets that differed (...)

    Effects of acute exercise on emotional memory.Paul Loprinzi, Danielle Olafson, Claire Scavuzzo, Ashley Lovorn, Mara Mather, Emily Frith & Esther Fujiwara - 2022 - Cognition and Emotion 36 (4):660-689.
    Research has demonstrated beneficial effects of acute exercise on memory for neutral materials, such as word lists of neutral valence/low arousal. However, the impacts of exercise on emotional memory is less understood. Across three laboratory experiments in college students, we tested if acute exercise could enhance both neutral and emotional memory performance, anticipating a greater effect for emotional memory. We examined effects of exercise at varying intensities (Experiment 1: high-intensity; Experiment 2: low- and high-intensity; Experiment 3: moderate-intensity), of diverse modalities (...)
