Emotion regulation is based on several factors, such as valence bias, the tendency to perceive information as negative or positive, and trait-like factors. Despite consistent latency for valence bias, studies have considered the role of reaction time for categorizing valences of expressions. Based on data that reveals that categorizing ambiguous expressions takes longer than less ambiguous ones, a different process may be involved (Neta et al., 2009). Researchers have explained that the ability to regulate emotions may aide in working memory processes. It is important to determine the extent that emotion regulation influences working memory capacity (WMC). WMC stores a given amount of goal-oriented information at a time while ignoring distractors (Conway et al., 2005). Attending to the target information may alter the way the working memory processes it. Thus, WMC may affect the way we process emotions by manipulating the way we perceive information. Schmeichel et al. (2008)…

Moreover, the brain’s preference for consonance causes dissonance to agitate nerves (Radiolab, 2010). To illustrate, before the first performance of the Rite of Spring, Stravinsky described it as a “concert about springtime”, when in reality, it was about “radical change and ritual murder” (Radiolab, 2010).

    The memory works in a process of three stages- encoding, storage and retrieval. This enables humans to learn new material, store the material and then retrieve and extract it at a later date when necessary (Eysenck & Keane, 2010). However, many psychologists have researched the effect of emotion on these stages of memory processing. Many have been interested in the idea of emotion affecting the ability to accurately retrieve past events due to many alternating factors. Some argue that matching…
