This textbook provides an integration of what we currently understand about learning and memory, drawing together research findings in the neurosciences. It takes an approach that progresses from neurons, synapses and molecules through cellular processes to multiple memory systems. The text also includes excellent explanations of behavioural and neurobiological methods.

Who is it for? Readers who want to build on the legacy of Pavlov, Ebbinghaus and Bartlett.

Presentation - Very readable and includes research vignettes from all the major players in the field.

Would you recommend it? I already have my order in with the publisher.
