Human Memory by Mary B. Howes
Book DescriptionHuman Memory: Structures and Images offers students a comprehensive overview of research in human memory. Providing a theoretical background for the research, author Mary B. Howes uses a clear and accessible format to cover three major areas: mainstream experimental research; naturalistic research; and work in the domains of the amnesias, malfunctions of memory, and neuroscience. Key Features: - Offers extensive coverage of naturalistic research: Areas of current naturalistic research, such as eyewitness testimony and courtroom procedures are included, as is the functioning of memory under atypical or abnormal conditions. The book also discusses the issue of traumatic and repressed memories. In addition, experimental research, including simulation with computers is covered and an appendix on Computer Functioning is available online. Emphasizes the constructivist position: offering greater coverage than other books on the subject, this text stresses constructivist ideas and examines the debate between constructivist and nonconstructivist models of memory so that readers can emerge with a clear understanding of the issues underlying this opposition.Provides historical material needed to properly understand current work: A prologue introduces students to the nature of human memory, and a concluding epilogue integrates themes and issues such as strong recall, forgetting, memory change, and false memories from the book in a obig pictureo sort of way. Key terms are highlighted within the text and chapters end with brief summaries and discussion questions. Intended Audience: This text is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Memory, Human Memory, Memory and Cognition, and Memory and Forgetting.
