Does stress have an affect onimpair your short term memory?

I have noticed frequently, when in a very stressful situation  (particularly emotional stress), I will forget things very quickly. To give an example:

Recently, I got in a heated argument with a friend. During the fight, a third friend came in and tried to break it up. "What is this about?" he asked. I was about to answer, and then it occurred to me I didn't know. I was still angry, but the information had already escaped my mind.

I have noticed this happen more than once. I asked someone about it, and they said they had had similar experiences. Is there some hard science behind this?

Is there some hard science to support the idea that stress negatively affects short term memory?
