Review "This second edition of Memory is, if anything, even better than the first.
It is an outstanding coverage of current findings and theories written by top international authors. This edition has more on the brain correlates of memory, and more on lifespan development and memory disorders.
It is written in an engaging personal style and may be strongly recommended both as a textbook and as an authoritative up-to-date source for the general reader. The text seamlessly integrates research from cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroimaging. I highly recommend this informative and enjoyable text. Schacter, Harvard University, USA "The past decade has seen breathtaking leaps in our scientific understanding of human memory, in terms of both behavior and the brain.
This text reflects a seamless coordination of effort from three leading memory researchers with complementary interests in different aspects of memory. They manage to present what is known in a thorough, organized, and engaging manner while still conveying the sense of adventure and open-mindedness one needs to appreciate important, unanswered questions about memory that are fundamental to our understanding of what it is to be human.
The second edition is even better. The authors have added material, rearranged the chapters so that they flow better, and the result is a wide-ranging textbook that is excels in its coverage of the field. Louis, USA "The first edition of this book was already the best introduction to the topic available.
This second, updated and reorganized edition adds an accessible introduction to techniques for exploring memory functions in the brain, and retains the impressive breadth and depth of coverage from the first edition, written by scientists who have made major contributions themselves to our understanding of human memory.
Best of all, the authors have a historical sensibility while being very up-to-date, which gives the reader a good sense of how the field of memory research developed and where it is heading. I recommend the book enthusiastically. The three authors write clearly, and important terminology is glossed. Graphs and charts present plenty of experimental data but are not obtrusive, and the chapter summaries are a helpful length. He is celebrated for devising the ground-breaking and highly influential working memory model with Graham Hitch in the early s, a model which still proves valuable today in recognising the functions of short-term memory.

I haven't read it for class after I found out we do not have any test. The book arrived fast. Definitely would buy again. Very good condition. Well written and researched.
I needed a quick overview of the state of memory research, and this book was very useful to me for that. I felt that it was more useful in the domains of working memory and episodic memory, and weakest in semantic memory, but reading the whole thing was definitely worthwhile. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
