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.

Colleen M. Kelley is a cognitive psychologist with a research focus on memory processes. Much of her work has focused on the interpretation of subjective cues such as fluency of processing in memory and metamemory judgments. She is currently a member of the Steering Committee of the International Association of Metacognition and has served on the editorial boards of a number of journals.
Andrew P. Yonelinas is a cognitive psychologist with expertise in quantitative modeling and memory disorders. He is an expert in memory models, measurement methodology, and quantitative analysis. He has published extensively on memory theory, measurement, and memory disorders associated with age-related changes including normal aging, stroke, cardiac arrest, and Alzheimer's disease. He developed a highly influential model of memory retrieval that has become the standard in the field and is featured in several textbooks.
Henry L. Roediger, III holds an endowed chair at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, and is in the top echelon of researchers in cognitive psychology. He published highly influential work on "implicit" memory in the 1980s, and in the 1990s he and coauthor Kathleen McDermott popularized and greatly extended a procedure for fostering false memories that had initially been introduced in the 1950s by James Deese. The Deese–Roediger–McDermott or DRM method has been used in hundreds of published studies and it continues to be very popular today.
