Dr. Glenberg's research is in the areas of memory and language comprehension, and he is regarded as one of the foremost proponents of the embodied approach to language. Dr. Graesser is a full professor in the Department of Psychology, adjunct professor in Computer Science, and co-Director of the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis. Dr. Graesser received his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of California at San Diego and has been a visiting researcher at Yale University, Stanford University, and Carnegie Mellon University.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A cognitive science student on September 5, 2009
Format: Hardcover
The format of this book allows its contributors to discuss issues in cognitive science on a very theoretical level, and engage in broad, philosophical speculations, thus drawing out implications beyond those discussed in the original empirical reports of the data. Thus, the issues are (mostly) empirical but are given philosophical treatment, often by researchers who are not philosophers by trade, but who get to discuss their own and others' data. Fun reading!
