Overview

Using data from both human and animal experiments and citing both classic and contemporary studies, this exciting book illustrates how various topics in learning and memory are related and how the theoretical perspectives in these areas have evolved. The author team has created a comprehensive text on learning and memory that combines current with classic research. This extensively revised Second Edition is organized by the following unifying themes: 1) learning and memory are basic processes that result in diverse phenomena; 2) learning and memory are interrelated but separable domains; 3) learning and memory are adaptive processes, and; 4) learning and memory occur in a biological context. These themes provide a more understandable approach for students.
