By accessing these memories in the context of a safe environment, the hypothesis is that information processing is enhanced, with new associations forged between the traumatic memory and more adaptive memories or information. The adaptive immune system is known to learn and remember the shape of infecting agents this is the system that vaccines use to confer immunity, by introducing the body to a pathogen's structure.
Adaptive memory is the study of memory systems that have evolved to help retain survival- and fitness-related information, ie, that are geared toward helping an organism enhance its reproductive fitness and chances of surviving one key element of adaptive memory research is the notion that memory evolved to help survival by better retaining information that is fitness-relevant.

Overall, although survival-related processing and survival-related information resulted in poorer, not more accurate, memory, such inaccuracies may have adaptive significance these findings are discussed in the context of false memory research and recent theories concerning the importance of survival processing and the nature of adaptive memory.

Adaptive memory and social influences test aaron david leedy, university of north florida abstract recently, cognitive psychologists have focused their research on the survival aspects of human memory, showing advantages for remembering information encoded for adaptive qualities. The benefits of excellent memory are obvious because people rely on memory on a regular basis — to remember the grocery list, the name of a new colleague, or the location of the car keys but recent research suggests that there are situations in which forgetting, not remembering, is advantageous.
