Human Memory

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on


Our capacity to store and retrieve information has fascinated cognitive and neuropsychologists for decades, and spawned generations of researchers from across the globe to study it from many angles. Researchers are fundamentally interested in short-term memory, working memory, long-term memory, memory systems, memory impairment and different methods for studying memory, for example newer imaging technologies (for e.g. Neuroscience methods). This collection collates those articles which represent the conceptual issues in Human Memory and demonstrate the key contemporary themes in memory. Moreover, developments in contemporary theory often urge the student, academic or practitioner to revisit classic works. As such, this collection, Human Memory, is separated into four volumes. Volume I studies cases of Memory Impairment. Contemporary cognitive psychology and in particular memory, is often taught from a neuropsychological angle. Volume II covers models of Memory and Memory Systems looking at the classification and subdivisions of the memory system drawing on neuroscience models (e.g. Hemispheric Encoding Retrieval Asymmetry), developmental patterns (Childhood Amnesia, Memory Aging as Frontal Lobe impairment) and laboratory experimentation (Interference theory, verbal learning paradigms). Volume III focuses on Fundamentals of Human Memory and gathers together the essential empirical work on various properties of memory. Volume IV looks at Memory in Everyday Life and considers eyewitness testimony as well as prospective remembering, autobiographical memory, navigation, rehabilitation, education, and memory for dreams and social influences on memory.

Product Details

Meet the Author

Chris Moulin is a cognitive neuropsychologist. His current research interests focus on neuropsychological impairments of memory. In particular, he is interested in the interaction of executive function and long-term memory. Research themes include metacognition (such as knowing what you know), inhibition (such as suppressing unwanted information), and the sensations of memory (for example déjà vu).

Martin Conway is a cognitive psychologist. His current research interests focus on autobiographical memory; impairments of memory following brain injury; disruptions of memory in psychiatric illness; changes in memory across the lifespan; the self and memory; motivation and memory; emotion and memory; expert legal testimony on memory.
