Reviews

"With this exciting third edition of Memory, three leading researchers once again manage to combine accessible writing with expert coverage of classic studies and recent cutting-edge developments. As in the excellent previous editions, they effectively integrate material from cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroimaging to provide students with a broad perspective on key findings and ideas about memory. I enthusiastically recommend this outstanding text." - Daniel L. Schacter, Harvard University, USA

"In this third edition, Baddeley, Eysenck, and Anderson have surpassed even their own high standards set by the previous two editions for accessible and comprehensive scholarship. They integrate seamlessly, the understanding of brain function and structure in the healthy and damaged brain, cognitive theory, experimental cognitive psychology, and the applicability of memory research to life outside of the laboratory. This is all presented with their hallmark clarity of informed writing that achieves both an introduction to undergraduates, and an authoritative source for new and established researchers." - Robert Logie, University of Edinburgh, UK

"This third edition of Memory continues to meet the outstanding standards set by previous editions. It is an authoritative account of recent and classical theories and findings written in an engaging personal style by top researchers in the field. The coverage runs from observational studies of everyday memory successes and failures through clinical cases of memory disorders to current work on the neural correlates of learning and memory. The book can be strongly recommended as a highly readable introduction to the exciting world of memory research for both students and the general reader." - Fergus Craik, Rotman Research Institute, Canada
