This electronic book, Human Memory, Third Edition (PDF), offers a comprehensive review of research and theory pertaining to human memory. The book is divided into three main sections. In the background part, topics such as the history of memory, fundamental neuroscience concepts, and research technique are discussed. In the section on core subjects, mechanisms of forgetting, sensory registers, short-term/working memory, episodic memory, memory that is not declarative, and semantic memory are all discussed. Last but not least, there is a section devoted to special subjects, which covers topics such as formal models of memory, autobiographical memory, memory for space and time, memory and reality, and more. Throughout the book, the author of a best-selling book combines examples from the fields of psychology, law, education, and medicine to demonstrate how applicable the concepts are to everyday life and a variety of professional fields. In addition, there are opportunities presented for college students to investigate the testing of memory in situations that are conducted in laboratories. The chapters can be covered in any order, which provides professors and instructors with the maximum amount of flexibility in designing course assignments. Each chapter includes key terms, an overview, Stop and Review synopses, Improving Your Memory and Study in Depth boxes, Try it Out exercises, study questions, and sections titled Putting It All Together and Explore More.
This textbook is designed for use in advanced or introductory-level classes in human memory, neuropsychology of memory, human learning and memory, as well as seminars on many issues related to human memory. Additionally, it is suitable for use in classes dealing with broad cognitive psychology and cognitive science.
