"Lieberman takes his mastery of a wide range of complex research and theory and presents it in clear, respectful, and thought-provoking prose." --Paul Young, Houghton College, New York
"This is a highly readable text. It draws the reader in from the very first page and challenges them to really think about and question the rest of the text. All concepts and theories are explained well and elaborated on with both real-world and research examples and it makes great use of applications which really help students to understand." --Hayley Ness, The Open University
"Human Learning & Memory is a lively and engaging read. The author does an excellent job of building up concepts and guiding the reader through quite complex theoretical ideas without over-burdening them with jargon. I was impressed by the constant reinforcing of key points with particularly interesting and/or clever experiments." --Samuel Hutton, University of Sussex
"David Lieberman, of the University of Stirling, attempts to integrate different facets of the subject, including learning and memory, and behavior and cognition. The text focuses on human research in both memory and learning and aims to encourage students to think critically. Key theories and issues are detailed, and the focus on underlying cognitive processes aims to offer insight into learning and memory as inter-related actions rather than two separate activities." --Times Higher Education
This innovative textbook is the first to integrate learning and memory, behaviour and cognition. It focuses on humans and the latest developments in the subject. As part of the in-depth coverage, research is related to its practical applications with examples such as treatments for phobias and autism.
