Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a wonderful textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. This long-overdue, accessible summary of the main findings of a fast-evolving field is likely to influence students of memory for years to come. However, this insightful book is much more than a textbook; the structure and contents go well beyond a collection of didactic essays on the most influential cognitive neuroscience studies of memory. Instead, it is a highly personal and compelling narrative that reflects both the author's command of cognitive neuroscience and his unique perspective on its history and current directions. The book is an impressive combination of scholarship and accessibility. The author's elegant pen and mastery of the subject does justice to complex ideas, despite their torturous historical precedents, yet does not sacrifice clarity. This is the kind of textbook that encourages the reader to think about key issues and ideas."--Nature Neuroscience

I bought this book as a requirement for a college course at Indiana University and I truly enjoyed the authors ability to describe topics in a simplistic way, but without sacrificing the science behind it. It had many examples of experiments and scientific theories that helped me to better understand the process of memory development (mainly through rat experimentation). Overall the book was a good resource, and presented the information in a format that was easy to read and understand.

Format: Paperback
This textbook is inadequate as an introduction to the cognitive neuroscience of memory. It reads as random lines copied and pasted from dozens of different studies. The author does a poor job of weaving a cohesive narrative out of these pieces. A better textbook would have highlighted how the findings combine to create a more complete picture of how memory systems interact and complement one another.

The text is also too heavy on text. That is, there are not enough diagrams and schematics to illustrate the topics being discussed. This is unacceptable for the more visual learner who needs images to reinforce and better explain the author's words.

In addition, while the study questions at the beginning of each chapter outline the more salient points of the discussion, the questions are somewhat confusing in that they do not mirror exactly the organization of the chapter. It would be more helpful if either:

-Each question were a subheading of the larger topic of the chapter.
-The study questions were briefly and explicitly answered at the end of the chapter.

In short, stay clear of this book. It is poorly organized, frustrating to read, and lacks substantive critique of or insight into the field.
