Abstract

The current study examined memory and was interested in (1) examining if reading a scary versus a neutral story affects memory and (2) examining if gender plays a role in memory differences. Half the participants read a scary story and half read a neutral story. Participants were then asked to fill out an eight question questionnaire. Seven of the questions had the same answer and only one question had a different answer. A 2x2 analysis of variance will be used to analyze data. Findings and ideas for future similar studies will also be explored.
