Presenting the work of researchers who are at the forefront of the study of memory mechanisms, this volume addresses a wide range of topics including: physiological and biophysical studies of synaptic plasticity, neural models of information storage and recall, functional and structural considerations of amnesia in brain-damaged patients, and behavioral studies of animal cognition and memory. The book's coverage of diverse approaches to memory mechanisms Format: Paperback.   Mechanisms of Memory, Third Edition, is the only available comprehensive overview of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying higher-order learning and memory. Focusing on mechanisms relevant to hippocampus-dependent memory formation, the book progresses systematically from behavior to cellular physiology at molecular and genetic levels. Moreover, it integrates modern discoveries concerning learning and memory Book Edition: 3.   The book's coverage of diverse approaches to memory mechanisms is intended to help dissolve the borders between behavioral psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, and by:   Mechanisms of Memory Description.

To the best of our knowledge, the only book that has explicitly used this approach is a volume edited by Baumgartner and Payr (), entitled Speaking Minds: Interviews with Twenty Eminent Cognitive.

  This book is an enlightening and invaluable resource for anyone concerned with memory mechanisms. * Presents a unified view of memory mechanisms from behavior to genes and drawing examples from. This fully revised second edition provides the only unified synthesis of available information concerning the mechanisms of higher-order memory formation. It spans the range from learning theory, to human and animal behavioral learning models, to cellular physiology and biochemistry. This book presents a clear and friendly overview of the Working Memory (WM) field, but is by no way simplistic in its form. The reader will learn a lot about the system/process(es) debate, about the implication of WM in cognitive tasks, an so on/5(7).   This fully revised second edition provides the only unified synthesis of available information concerning the mechanisms of higher-order memory formation. It spans the range from learning theory, to human and animal behavioral learning models, to cellular physiology and biochemistry. It is unique in its incorporation of chapters on memory disorders, tying in these .
