Overview

In the 22 chapters in this volume, many of the world’s foremost memory scientists report on their cutting-edge research on the nature of human memory, with several chapters reporting new empirical studies that are being published for the first time. All the contributions are inspired by the work of Larry Jacoby on human memory, with his emphasis on episodic memory — that is, the processes and mechanisms that enable us to remember our own past experiences. In addition, the volume reflects Jacoby's appreciation that memory enters into a wide range of psychological phenomena, including perceiving, attending, and performing.

The stellar list of contributors and the breadth of coverage makes this volume essential reading for researchers and graduate students in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, as well as being a tribute and celebration of the inspirational, groundbreaking — and ongoing — work of Larry Jacoby.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"More than twenty chapters written by the foremost authorities on memory present the most exciting and novel discoveries about how we remember and forget. That they came together to celebrate a scientist, Larry Jacoby, who is among the most creative experimentalists of his generation gives the volume coherence and makes it a labor of love that readers will relish." Mahzarin R. Banaji, Ph.D., Harvard University
