Abstract  Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a chronic mental disorder caused by highly emotional events. The symptoms of PTSD, such as intrusion, flashback, pathological re-experience, increased vigilance and avoidance have severe impact on patients’ cognitive functions. The memories of the PTSD patients are characterized by intense and long lasting emotional contents, which are highly salient in the system of memory. The present article reviewed the psychophysics and the brain imaging studies on the advantage of emotional memories of individuals with PTSD. Results of these studies were not consistent due to many methodological factors and further studies are needed to explore these issues.
