Abstract: Mood congruent memory (MCM) is the tendency for individuals to encode and retrieve affectively-valenced information which is congruent with their prevailing mood state more easily than other information. For example, a depressed or sad individual tends to remember negative or unpleasant memories better than positive or happy memories.
