Life is filled with moments that evoke affective responses – we attend weddings and funerals, witness violence and affection, experience wins and losses. Our memories of these affective events impact a range of behaviors, including our decision making and our subjective well-being. I will discuss some of my work examining how the mind and brain support this special type of memory, and implications for these findings.
