Diagrams of the delayed-response WM tasks with emotional and neutral distractors. In the encoding task, three different human faces appeared once. The subjects were instructed to encode and maintain the WM for the presented human face, followed by looking at the distracters with neutral pictures (or trauma-provoking and emotional pictures) while maintaining the WM. During the retrieval period, either the face presented in the encoding task or a new face was presented (50% were presented with an encoding face and 50% were presented with a new face), and then the response to the probe for the previously presented human face or the new face was recorded. WM: working memory
