    Remembering the Details: Effects of Emotion.Elizabeth A. Kensinger - 2009 - Emotion Review 1 (2):99-113.
    Though emotion conveys memory benefits, it does not enhance memory equally for all aspects of an experience, nor for all types of emotional events. In this review, I outline the behavioral evidence for arousal's focal enhancements of memory and describe the neural processes that may support those focal enhancements. I also present behavioral evidence to suggest that these focal enhancements occur more often for negative experiences than for positive ones. This result appears to arise because of valence-dependent effects on the (...)

    What Factors Need to Be Considered to Understand Emotional Memories?Elizabeth A. Kensinger - 2009 - Emotion Review 1 (2):120-121.
    In my original review (Kensinger, 2009), I proposed that to understand the effects of emotion on memory accuracy, we must look beyond effects of arousal and consider the contribution of valence. In discussing this proposal, the commentators raise a number of excellent points that hone in on the question of when valence does (and does not) account for emotion's effects on memory accuracy. Though future research will be required to resolve this issue more fully, in this brief response, I address (...)

    Finding the Good in the Bad: Age and Event Experience Relate to the Focus on Positive Aspects of a Negative Event.Jaclyn H. Ford, Haley D. DiBiase & Elizabeth A. Kensinger - 2018 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (2):414-421.
    All lives contain negative events, but how we think about these events differs across individuals; negative events often include positive details that can be remembered alongside the negative, and the ability to maintain both representations may be beneficial. In a survey examining emotional responses to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, the current study investigated how this ability shifts as a function of age and individual differences in initial experience of the event. Specifically, this study examined how emotional importance, involvement, and (...)
