Gazzaniga, Michael S.

SUMMARY

Perspectives in Memory Research integrates current knowledge about memory from both the brain and cognitive sciences. The existing literature on memory is vast, attesting to the longstanding fascination with commitment to ongoing research at all levels and from widely varying points of view. This exciting collection presents new empirical data and theories concerning the formation, the retrieval, and the integration of memory processes and, to some extent, tries to identify how studying memory processes might help augment learning and training procedures. The chapters on the neurobiologic approach include one on brain function at the molecular level, by Ira Black; one on structure function considerations in the study of memory in cortical networks, by Gary Lynch; one on basic circuits for cortical organization, by Gordon Shepherd; and one on connectionist models of learning and memory, by Terrence Sejnowski. The psychological dimensions are probed by Marta Kutas, who reports on tracking memory capacity in the human brain; William Hirst, who discusses the improvement of memory; and Stephen Kosslyn, who considers imagery in learning. Michael Gazzaniga and William Hirst conclude with an essay on present and future memory research and its applications. Michael Gazzaniga is director of the Division of Cognitive Neuroscience at Cornell University Medical College, president of the Cognitive Neuroscience Institute, and an adjunct professor at the Dartmouth Medical School. A Bradford Book.Gazzaniga, Michael S. is the author of 'Perspectives in Memory Research' with ISBN 9780262071123 and ISBN 0262071126.
