Medicine: general issues

This comprehensive book covers the core principles of learning and memory in a clear, reader-friendly style, covering animal learning and human memory in a balanced fashion. The relationship between the field of neuropsychology and learning and memory has been stressed throughout the book, with special attention given to brain imaging research. The coverage of memory problems has been expanded to include sections addressing imagination inflation and recovered memory. Additional discussion of spatial memory in Chapter 11 features a discussion of the computer-based virtual mazes that are used for testing human spatial learning. Chapter 12, "Psychopathology and Memory," now includes a piece on post-traumatic stress disorder and related effects on memory. Designed for those interested in the combination of learning with memory and the psychology of learning.
