"The strengths and weaknesses of human memory have fascinated philosophers and thinkers for hundreds of years. Recent studies have resulted in theories that are rich, complex, and far-reaching in their implications." "The Oxford Handbook of Memory lays out these theories, and the evidence on which the theories are based. The important new discoveries of the last few years are described, along with their consequences for professionals in the areas of law, engineering, and clinical medicine." "The book is exhaustive in its coverage - examining such topics as the development of memory, the contents of memory, memory in the laboratory and in everyday use, memory in decline, the organization of memory, and theories of memory - making it ideal for psychologists, memory researchers, neuroscientists, and graduate students of psychology."--Jacket.
