Once it gets down to the specific aspects of learning and memory, the chapters are divided into sections: behavioral processes (how various phenomenon manifest themselves in behavior), brain substrates (the physical processes within the brain), and clinical perspectives (impact of damage or dysfunction on the processes). All in all, a pretty good strategy.
My biggest disappointment was the treatment of emotion on learning and memory. Here, the behavioral processes section focused mostly on fear and anxiety, and emotions in animals. Not much help when one wants to learn how all the emotions affect learning and memory. What about boredom, disengagement, and disinterest? Don't these have an emotional component. Guess I'll have to go elsewhere.
