Role of combined cognitive bias hypothesis in anxiety

The ability to manage unwanted memories is crucial for emotional regulation and maintaining mental state. Previous evidence indicates that suppressing retrieval, which recruits executive control mechanisms to forestall unwanted memories entering consciousness, can cause forgetting, termed Suppression-Induced Forgetting (SIF). Since these executive mechanisms involve multiple mental operations, we hypothesize that the efficacy of SIF is also limited by individuals’ capacity limitation of cognitive control.
