Abstract

Stress constitutes an organism's essential physiological response to the environment, and it exerts variable influences on memory depending on the context, type, and duration of the stressor (Vogel and Schwabe, 2016). Generally, acute stressors are thought to boost memory formation, possibly as a survival mechanism, whereas exposure to chronic stress is associated with impaired memory formation, or stress-induced amnesia. This phenomenon is believed to be a defense mechanism to reduce psychological damage caused by excessive adversity.
