why can we remember moments so well, which were emotional

why can we remember moments so well, which were emotional

this talk is in german so i will just summarize it briefly in the following:

-> situations, which were quite emotional, get stored in the “amygdaloid nucleus ” part of our brain.
A “special” part of it.

-> this happens for the reason, that we can remember really fast, when we are in a similar situation.
in earlier times, this was live-safing for us. (Before your start thinking, run, when a lion is coming.) 

That is the reason, why you can remember things and situations better, when they are connected to a emotional moment.
