"This is a superb and authoritative book on the cognitive science of visual memory. It offers a unique and timely collection of reviews from the latest experts. Anyone with an interest in short and long-term memory, perception, and imagery would do well to ground themselves by reading this fine overview of the cutting-edge work." --Earl K. Miller, Picower Professor of Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Visual memory is a fascinating topic, exploring the varied formats in which we represent the world around us and retrieve past experiences. This is a definitive survey of our current knowledge in the field, written by experts who themselves did much of the research. It is both a scholarly resource and an interesting and varied set of chapters just to dip into and read." --Anne Treisman, Professor of Psychology, Princeton University
"In this excellent book, many of the leaders in the field survey most of the important topics in visual memory. I was impressed by the real effort to go beyond the authors' own positions, giving balanced views of controversial topics and providing useful historical grounding. This is likely to be the go-to volume on visual memory for years to come." --Jeremy M. Wolfe, Professor of Ophthalomology, Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women's Hospital
