InLearning and Memory, leading researcher Howard Eichenbaum provides a new-fashioned synthesis of the contemporary learning and memory fields. Utilizing three key strategies, the book achieves this synthesis by first taking an interdisciplinary approach, integrating theories and research from the fields of animal learning, human memory, and neuroscience. Next, Eichenbaum incorporates animal and human research literature throughout to give the book a strong comparative dimension. Finally, Eichenbaum organizes the text around multiple memory systems, moving from simple to more complex forms of learning and memory. Complemented by a comprehensive art program featuring nearly 175 drawings and photos,Learning and Memoryis a path-breaking text, thoroughly integrating neuroscience and behavioral research to clearly convey the contemporary science of the mind.
