Product Description

Review

"Provides the reader with a sound and thorough grounding in current theoretical memory frameworks and the methodologies and empirical findings on which they are based . . . useful for advanced undergraduates, beginning graduate students, healthcare professionals such as physicians, and other professionals who may have relevant work-related interests, such as lawyers and social workers. Informed laypeople may well also find sections of this text to be quite accessible and without-doubt informative."--Brain

"The coverage in this book is extensive. Everything you wanted to know about the various leading-edge fields of human cognitive memory research is here, and written by eminent researchers." --Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

"An epic tome . . . It is safe to say the editors and contributors have succeeded in producing a highly interesting book, remarkable in its breadth and thoroughness. As readers and fellow researchers, we can feel ourselves fortunate that such a diverse and interesting field has been treated so well." --Psychological Reports

"Over 60 authors constitute a Who's Who in the field of memory, virtually guaranteeing that the reports are state of the art. Even specialists will benefit from the coverage of subjects in which they have expertise . . . there is no comprehensive, advanced textbook of memory currently on the market nor has there ever been one since the middle 1970s. The reason is simple: no one could possibly write one, certainly not one with the scope and level of information present in the OHM. This volume, then, fills a gap that has needed filling for years. For now, the OHM is the gold standard and all memory professionals are in debt of the editors and authors for its existence."--Canadian Psychology

"Summarizes the research findings over the past decades that comprise the new science of memory . . . Contributors set out the various theories and the evidence they are based on and explore the consequences for professionals in law, engineering, and clinical medicine." --SciTech Book News

"". . . will be the standard source book in the field for years to come." --Tim Shallice, University College London

"The most important book on the subject ever published." --Michael S. Gazzaniga, Dartmouth University

Fantastic resource! June 12 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most complete resources I've ever seen in an area that has rapidly grown in many directions. Tulving and Craik have done a marvelous job of pulling together this diverse field in a clear, concise, yet thorough manner! I would highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in the field of memory research.

future classic Aug. 28 2008
By pd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is mandatory reading for any student in fields related to memory. Probably due for an update soon though, and not really suitable for the simply curious (for that see Dan Schacter's and Alan Baddeley's books).
