|NEW MEMORY BOOK
and Memory: From Brain to Behavior is a new textbook
from Catherine E. Myers, editor-in-chief of Memory
Loss & the Brain, and Mark A. Gluck, the newsletter's
publisher. The textbook provides an accessible introduction
to learning and memory, including the latest brain research
and implications for various neurological and psychological
disorders. Although targeted at college students, the book
assumes no scientific background, and can be read by anyone
interested in how memory works.
Each chapter introduces readers to some aspect of learning
and memory behavior, reviews the underlying brain mechanisms,
and discusses how various neurological and psychiatric disorders
alter these behaviors.
"An exciting, well-informed, and well-written discussion
of brain mechanisms of learning and memory processes. The
authors do an excellent job in presenting the emerging trends."
- John Byrnes, Ph.D. Tufts University of Medicine
"The authors have done an extraordinary job of making
the material entertaining and enjoyable and at the same time
providing up-to-date information in a most readable manner."
- Richard Thompson, University of Southern California
