Several independent lines of evidence have suggested that stress, and more specifically, cortisol, can generally alter memory processes by exerting effects on local memory circuitry in the brain. However, the complicated relationships that exist between cortisol and the ability to integrate a central memory into its surrounding context have not yet been discovered. Vamessa van Ast aims to reveal the mechanisms by which cortisol may alter memory contextualisation.
