This article is about the minds ability to recognize and recall a memory after upsetting events. The researchers wanted to know if after watching news about drugs, the kidnapping attempt, and advertisements, would the mind still be able to retain details or information about the spontaneous kidnapping attempt. There were 102 participants in the study that were split into 2 groups, the incidental group and the intentional. They found that both groups recalled the same amount of information about the kidnapping.
