At last…a research-based text that engages students in learning about memory in a meaningful way

Designed to make memory research come to life through the use of examples that students can use in their everyday lives, this text provides an in-depth exploration into the science and the methodology of memory. Author Bennett Schwartz includes separate chapters on metamemory, biology of memory, and false memory – critical to a comprehensive understanding of memory science-to enhance the book’s accessible introduction to the field. Throughout the book, coverage of cognitive psychology and neuroscience is integrated to help students make the connection between cognitive theory and research and the places in the brain where memory processes occur.
