FOX, C.; BECKNELL, M. E.; BELDEN, A.; FIRMIN, R. L. Wpływ glukozy i pobudzenia emocjonalnego na pamięć studentów. Konteksty Pedagogiczne, v. 1, n. 12, p. 9-26, 28 cze. 2019.


Celem badania było sprawdzenie wpływu podania glukozy, oraz pobudzenia emocjonalnego, na pamięć. Uczestnikami byli studenci przydzieleni losowo do grup glukozy (50 g glukozy) i grup placebo (50,6 mg sacharyny), a następnie podzieleni na grupy o wysokim i niskim poziomie podniecenia emocjonalnego. Grupom o wysokim i niskim poziomie podniecenia emocjonalnego pokazano zestaw slajdów, którego treść była odpowiednio pobudzająca emocjonalnie lub neutralna emocjonalnie. Wykonano pomiary glukozy we krwi, a testy pamięci i rozpoznawania były przeprowadzane w różnych odstępach czasu w trakcie eksperymentu. Glukoza poprawiła pamięć natychmiastową tylko u kobiet, podczas gdy pobudzenie emocjonalne poprawiło zarówno pamięć natychmiastową, jak i przywoływanie wspomnień u wszystkich badanych. Pobudzenie emocjonalne poprawiło pamięć rozpoznawczą tylko u mężczyzn. Chociaż przedstawione w artykule odkrycia potwierdzają usprawniające działanie glukozy i pobudzenia emocjonalnego na pamięć, jednocześnie prowokują więcej pytań na temat różnic we wpływie tych dwóch czynników na pamięć u mężczyzn i kobiet.
