Memory: From Mind to Molecules

( 2 )

Overview

Combining insights from both cognitive neuroscience and molecular biology, two of the world's leading experts address memory from molecules and cells to brain systems and cognition. Memory shows how the recent convergence of psychology and biology has resulted in an exciting new synthesis of knowledge about learning and remembering. Among the many new discoveries recounted by Larry R. Squire and Eric R. Kandel are the existence of multiple memory systems that divide up the workload of remembering (one handles ...

Overview

Combining insights from both cognitive neuroscience and molecular biology, two of the world's leading experts address memory from molecules and cells to brain systems and cognition. Memory shows how the recent convergence of psychology and biology has resulted in an exciting new synthesis of knowledge about learning and remembering. Among the many new discoveries recounted by Larry R. Squire and Eric R. Kandel are the existence of multiple memory systems that divide up the workload of remembering (one handles facts and past experiences, another handles motor and perceptual strategies, etc.) and the steps by which memories are created through changes in the specific connections between the nerve cells of the brain. Memory is ideal for general audiences who are interested in discovering what is currently known about one of the basic aspects of human existence.

Disc. declarative memory; priming, perceptual & emotional learning; biological basis of individuality; & more.

    Drs. Squire and Kandel have long been among my heroes as writers and researchers. It would be hard to find authors on this topic with higher credentials, but in combination with their ability to write/explain/teach the topic, no praise is too high.

    Drs. Kandel and Squire have provided a book for everyone who wishes to learn about memory and learning. As a practicing neurologist, I found a great deal of helpful information; some of it was familiar, much was new, but all was presented in a tremendously lucid manner. A layperson would understand this book quite well, but it has much to offer a professional or a scientist in a related field.
