After a historical overview, this text emphasizes the relationships among research, data, and theory in the field of memory, and covers areas including sensory memory, amnesia, and memory development. Each chapter features a classic or otherwise important experiment that students can easily conduct. Major changes from the first edition include expanded coverage of neuropsychology and the effects of aging on memory, and placement of a detailed discussion of quantitative memory models in an optional chapter while retaining verbal descriptions within the original chapter. This second edition also features interactive experiments students can conduct online. The authors teach psychological sciences at Purdue University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
