Supplementary Figure 5

Memory scores (y-axis) per phase for group A. Emotional narratives accompanied both slide-stories learnt by patients. Each story can be separated into three phases (x-axis) of which the middle is considered most emotional and results in enhanced memory when compared to the same images accompanied by a neutral narrative. Testing for a reactivation (reactivated story (solid bars), non-reactivated story (open-bars)) x phase (1,2,3) effect within group A revealed a main effect of reactivation (F1, 12 = 8.75 P = 0.012), but no main effect of phase (F2, 24 = 0.48, P = 0.624), or reactivation x phase interaction (F2, 24 = 2.40, P = 0.112). Thus we observe no interaction between relative emotionality of the studies material and the disturbance of reactivated memory. Error bars depict s.e.m.
