    Modulation of Long-Term Memory by Arousal in Alexithymia: The Role of Interpretation.Kristy A. Nielson & Mitchell A. Meltzer - 2009 - Consciousness and Cognition 18 (3):786-793.
    Moderate physiological or emotional arousal induced after learning modulates memory consolidation, helping to distinguish important memories from trivial ones. Yet, the contribution of subjective awareness or interpretation of arousal to this effect is uncertain. Alexithymia, which is an inability to describe or identify one’s emotional and arousal states even though physiological responses to arousal are intact, provides a tool to evaluate the role of arousal interpretation. Participants scoring high and low on alexithymia learned a list of 30 words, followed by (...)

    Memory for Emotionally Provocative Words in Alexithymia: A Role for Stimulus Relevance.Mitchell A. Meltzer & Kristy A. Nielson - 2010 - Consciousness and Cognition 19 (4):1062-1068.
    Alexithymia is associated with emotion processing deficits, particularly for negative emotional information. However, also common are a high prevalence of somatic symptoms and the perception of somatic sensations as distressing. Although little research has yet been conducted on memory in alexithymia, we hypothesized a paradoxical effect of alexithymia on memory. Specifically, recall of negative emotional words was expected to be reduced in alexithymia, while memory for illness words was expected to be enhanced in alexithymia.Eighty-five high or low alexithymia participants viewed (...)
