Effects of stress on memory Stress affects many memory functions and cognitive functioning of the brain.[7] There are different levels of stress and the high levels can be intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic stress level is triggered by a cognitive challenge whereas extrinsic can be triggered by a condition not related to a cognitive task.[5] Intrinsic stress can be acutely and chronically experienced by a person.[5] The varying effects of stress on performance or stress hormones are often compared to or known as “inverted-u”[7] which induce areas in learning, memory and plasticity.[5] Chronic stress can affect the brain structure and cognition. Studies considered the effects of stress on both intrinsic and extrinsic memory functions, using for both of them Pavlovian conditioning and spatial learning.[5] In regards to intrinsic memory functions, the study evaluated how stress affected memory functions that was triggered by a learning challenge.
