Neuropsychology of Memory

Overview

This classic reference and text brings together leading neuroscientists to describe current approaches to the study of memory. The third edition gives particular attention to neuroimaging, which has emerged in the past decade as one of the most active areas of research in the field. Other major approaches covered are lesions; electrophysiology; single-unit recording; pharmacology; and molecular genetics, including new work with genetically modified mice. Chapters are organized into three sections, presenting ...

Overview

This classic reference and text brings together leading neuroscientists to describe current approaches to the study of memory. The third edition gives particular attention to neuroimaging, which has emerged in the past decade as one of the most active areas of research in the field. Other major approaches covered are lesions; electrophysiology; single-unit recording; pharmacology; and molecular genetics, including new work with genetically modified mice. Chapters are organized into three sections, presenting state-of-the-art studies of memory in humans, nonhuman primates, and rodents and birds. Each chapter explicates the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of the authors' research program, reviews salient empirical findings, and identifies promising directions for future investigation. Featured are more than 50 illustrations, including three in color.

Studies of normal/abnormal memory in humans, monkeys, rodents, birds & invertebrates.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reflects the progress--in the eight years since the first edition--in understanding the organization of memory and its neurological functions, due in part to the increased availability of animal models of human memory impairment. This edition is organized into three sections: Studies of Normal and Abnormal Memory in Humans; Studies of Monkeys and Rodents; and Studies in Birds and Invertebrates. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From The Critics
Seventy-nine international neuroscientists contribute to the fully revised and updated third edition of this text, describing their current approaches in the study of memory and findings from resent research. Thirty-eight chapters are organized into sections on studies of normal and abnormal memory in humans, of memory in nonhuman primates, and of memory in rodents and birds. The many changes in the field since the 1992 publication of the second edition are reflected in the new text, including the use of positron emission tomography and the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging in research on memory. Other approaches discussed include lesions; electrophysiology; single-unit recording; pharmacology; and molecular genetics, including new work with genetically modified mice. Annotation c.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is the third edition of a book that incorporates the ever-changing technology and the approaches to the study of memory. The first edition was published in 1984 and the second edition in 1992.
Purpose: The purpose is provide updated and current thinking within the field of neuropsychology. The editors have compiled a collection of notable scientists to share their current approaches to the study of memory and to summarize their thoughts and ideas. Of interest are the chapters which discuss functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) as these neuroimaging techniques were not used or unavailable at the time of the second edition in 1992. The book is a worthy contribution to the field and meets the objectives.
Audience: This book is intended primarily for graduate students, academicians, researchers, and neuropsychologists. The editors and contributors are credible authorities in the field.
Features: The book is broken down into three parts: the first presents the studies of normal and abnormal memory in humans; the second, studies of memory in nonhuman primates; and the third, studies of memory in rodents and birds. The chapters are thorough, some chapters are technical yet readable, and the topics are quite relevant. The chapters on Alzheimer's developmental amnesia, and memory rehabilitation are a must read. The index is user-friendly, and this book has continued staying power as a teaching text.
Assessment: A well-written and smartly updated edition in what continues to be a prominent book within the field. This is an appropriate replacement of the 1992 edition and will continue to serve the needs of researchers as well as serve as a solid teaching tool.
From the Publisher
"This impressive third edition covers a wide range of topics in an ever more sophisticated field. The volume's scope and the care with which it has been edited will once again make it a well-thumbed standard on many a bookshelf. Written by leading international figures in memory research as well as up-and-coming young investigators, chapters examine current issues and debates in a refreshingly open manner. Resolving these areas of controversy will be the mainspring of future advances in the field."—Professor Richard Morris, DPhil, FRS, Department of Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK

"The science of memory has made remarkable progress during recent years, largely because of its now firmer-than-ever connections to the brain. This outstanding volume provides up-to-date and highly authoritative coverage of the striking progress in the field, in the areas of neuroimaging of human memory, neuropsychological analyses of brain-damaged patients, and neurobiological studies of non-human primates and other animals. Written by leading experts at the cutting edge of contemporary research, the third edition of Neuropsychology of Memory, like its predecessors, will prove an indispensable guide for both novices and veterans in memory research."—Endel Tulving, PhD, Rotman Research Institute of Baycrest Centre
