Will the Excitement Help You Remember? the Impact of Ad-Arousal on Memory

We suggest and show that ad-arousal inhibits immediate memory but improves delayed memory. These effects, however, occur only when the arousing elements are relevant to the ad; when arousal is irrelevant, ad-arousal does not influence memory. Two lab experiments demonstrate these effects. Implications, limitations, and future research directions are discussed.
