Human Learning: Biology, Brain, and Neuroscience by Aaron S. Benjamin

Book Description

Human learning is studied in a variety of ways. Motor learning is often studied separately from verbal learning. Studies may delve into anatomy versus function, may view behavioural outcomes or look discretely at the molecular and cellular level of learning. All have merit but they are dispersed across a wide literature and rarely are the findings integrated and synthesized in a meaningful way. "Human Learning: Biology, Brain, and Neuroscience" synthesizes findings across these levels and types of learning and memory investigation. Divided into three sections, each section includes a discussion by the editors integrating themes and ideas that emerge across the chapters within each section.Section 1 discusses general topics in human learning and cognition research, including inhibition, short term and long term memory, verbal memory, memory disruption, and scheduling and learning. Section 2 discusses cognitive neuroscience aspects of human learning. Coverage here includes models, skill acquisition, declarative and non declarative memory, age effects on memory, and memory for emotional events. Section 3 focuses on human motor learning. This book is suitable for cognitive neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, kinesthesiologists, and graduate courses in learning. This work: synthesizes research from a variety of disciplines, levels, and content areas; provides section discussions on common findings between chapters; and, covers motor and verbal learning.

Successful Remembering and Successful Forgetting by Aaron S. Benjamin Successful Remembering and Successful Forgetting, Hardback (December 2010)

Showcases the theoretical advances and findings by researchers whose work and careers have been influenced by Bjork. This book reviews the application of research on learning and memory to enhancing human performance, reflecting Bjork's staunch commitment to translating his findings and theories to real-world settings.

Skill and Strategy in Memory Use by Aaron S. Benjamin Skill and Strategy in Memory Use, Hardback (November 2007)

Discusses strategies people use in responding to memory queries - whether and how to access memory and how to translate retrieved products into responses. This volume provides an integrative view of memory, metamemory, judgment and decision-making, and individual differences. It is relevant to both applied concerns and basic research.
