This first edition successfully synthesizes research on learning and memory in a coherent and unbiased manner. Lieberman integrates cognitive and behavioral approaches to learning and memory to show how these two approaches are complementary, with associative and cognitive processes jointly shaping our behavior. Using a stimulating, integrative, and practical approach that presents rigorous concepts with exceptional clarity, Lieberman ensures that students aren't lost in a forest of facts. To help make the information come alive, he interweaves material on laboratory research and practical applications in every chapter, as well as thoroughly integrating the text with SNIFFY THE VIRTUAL RAT, Pro Version and COGLAB, to offer students unique, hands-on experience.
