Book Description

The downloadable PDF titled “Behavioral Neuroscience of Learning and Memory” compiles the knowledge and perspectives of a number of the most eminent neuroscientists working in the field of learning and memory research from across the world. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent findings and theories in this field of study. It focuses not only on well-established topics like the memory system of the medial temporal lobe, but also on emerging fields of research like the role of memory in decision making and the mechanisms of perceptual learning. The cellular and molecular underpinnings of memory creation, the diversity of memory systems present in the brain, and the ways in which technology innovation is driving discoveries are some of the key overlapping issues explored in this book. This collection gathers studies from both people and animals, which are typically considered to be rather separate areas of discourse, in order to provide a more comprehensive and compiled view of the field as a whole. This is unusual for a volume of this type. The book will be of interest to both seasoned researchers who have the intention of expanding their knowledge of topics that lie outside of their specific areas of expertise and students who are looking for a resource that will assist them in making sense of the vast amount of scientific literature that exists on this topic.

NOTE: This offering only comes with the downloadable PDF version of the booklet titled “Behavioral Neuroscience of Learning and Memory.” There are no access codes contained within.
