Memory (4th ed.)

Foundations and Applications

Bennett L. Schwartz,

Memory: Foundations and Applications
 
 
As author Bennett Schwartz says in Memory: Foundations and Applicationsit is hard to imagine an aspect of psychology more fundamental than memory. This unique text covers key memory models, theories, and experiments, but goes a step further to demonstrate how students can apply these concepts to their everyday lives and improve their own ability to learn and remember. A new, three-pronged organization opens the text with an overview of the psychological science of Memory, builds expertise in advanced topics, and then allows the reader to think about how memory research can benefit society. Neuroscience research is integrated throughout each chapter to demonstrate our understanding of where memory processes occur and how researchers use data to shape memory theories. 

New to the Fourth Edition:
  • New chapters on memory science's relevance to the legal system, memory issues in psychiatric disorders, and application of memory research to improving the efficiency of one’s own memory.
  • Reorganized chapter on memory development and an enlarged section on prospective memory now combined with the chapter on metamemory.
  • Updated sections on cognitive maps, autobiographical memory and emotion, and expanded discussion of the memory component of Alzheimer’s disease.
