College students recalled autobiographical memories for 22 cues presented as either pictures, sound clips, or words. The cues represented either positive (wedding), neutral (clock), or negative (assault) emotions. Retrieval time was measured along with participants’ ratings of several memory characteristics. Emotional valence was the primary constraint on retrieval time.
