Editorial Reviews

Stemming from the eponymously named conference held May 1998, 25 contributions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives are presented by Tulving (cognitive neuroscience, Washington U., St. Louis). Lacking an overarching theme aside from the intersection of memory and consciousness, the papers discuss such topics as repressed memories, mood dependence and implicit memory, the effect of genes on memory, memory in child development, and neural interactions as the basis for human cognition. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
