Description - The Cognitive Psychology of Proper Names by Tim Valentine
Many people have difficulty remembering people's names, even though they can easily recall other information about the person. As memory and retrieval processes are central to cognitive psychology and neuropsychology, the study of proper names makes a practical focus of study. Using an information processing approach, Valentine, Brennan and Bredart consider evidence from speech production, face recognition and word recognition to develop a new functional model of the production and recognition of people's names. This book should be useful to all those studying cognitive psychology, cognitive neuropsychology and linguistics. It should also be suitable for higher level undergraduates and postgraduates and those engaged in research.
