This is an informative book that suffers what so many textbooks do. It begins with a dense, meandering, and disengaging history of the science before it gets to the interesting stuff. It's a perfect illustration of how texts drive students away - or make them suffer. In the first several chapters, it focuses on experiments with rats and monkeys while making scant reference to humans - relevant yes, but oh the packaging.

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.

A textbook that thoroughly covers the various aspects of our developing memories etc. Uses graphs, pictures and references to explore the topic even further.

I rented my texts from Amazon for the first time this semester and the overall experience has been fantastic. The book shipped very quick and in great condition. The price was the cheapest I had found for the text. The book material itself is interesting and easy to read and follow along.
