Background: Memory is one of the main functions that is impaired by neurological disorders. Noticing the susceptibility of memory to emotions, the effect of emotional states on memory in patients with alzheimer, brain tumor, and normal individuals was investigated in this study. Materials and Methods: Through Causal-Comparative study, 26 patients with alzheimer, 38 patients with brain tumor, and 30 normal individuals were selected and tested by a memory-related computerized task on explicit recall memory and implicit memory. Results: Patients with alzheimer showed a poor performance in memory tasks. They recognized more sad and threatening words in their explicit memory. Overall, patients with alzheimer and tumor in comparison with normal individuals indicated poorer explicit/implicit memory functions, respectively. Conclusion: Cognitive processes of patients with alzheimer are influenced when they encounter simple emotional stimulus.
