  1. Remembering

    New In the 22 chapters in this volume, many of the world’s foremost memory scientists report on their cutting-edge research on the nature of human memory, with several chapters reporting new empirical studies that are being published for the first time. All the contributions are inspired by the work of Larry Jacoby on human memory, with his emphasis on episodic memory -- that is, the processes and mechanisms that enable us to remember our own past experiences. 

  2. Just Published: Working Memory and Ageing

    The rapid growth in the numbers of older people worldwide has led to an equally rapid growth in research on the changes across age in cognitive function, including the processes of moment to moment cognition known as working memory. This book brings together international research leaders who address major questions about how age affects working memory:

  3. The Elderly Eyewitness in Court

    The majority of research on eyewitness memory has traditionally studied children and young adults. By contrast, this volume is designed to provide an overview of empirical research on the cognitive, social, and health related factors that impact the accuracy of eyewitness testimony given by the elderly. 

  4. Life-Span Maintenance of Knowledge

    This volume describes how well we maintain the knowledge we acquire throughout life. Research traditionally focuses on memory for events that are retained over short time periods that can be accommodated in experiments. This book, by contrast, uniquely describes the evolution of methods suitable for investigating memory of complex knowledge acquired over several years and retained during the entire life-span.

  5. An Emergence Approach to Speech Acquisition: Doing and Knowing

    The central assertion in this volume is that the young child uses general skills, scaffolded by adults, to acquire the complex knowledge of sound patterns and the goal-directed behaviors for communicating ideas through language and producing speech.

    Throughout, an evaluation is made of the research on patterns of typical development across languages in monolingual and bilingual children and children with speech impairments affecting various aspects of their developing complex system.

  6. Attributes of Memory (Psychology Revivals)

    First published in 1974, Attributes of Memory rejected the prevalent stress on the structure of memory. It suggests that the view of memory as a sequence of stores through which information passes is mistaken.

  7. Working Memory: The Connected Intelligence

    In this volume, the first in the new Frontiers of Cognitive Psychology Series, leading psychologists review the latest research on working memory and consider what role it plays in development and over the lifespan. It is revealed how a strong working memory is connected with success (academically and acquiring expertise) and a poor working memory is connected with failure (addictive behavior and poor decision-making).

  8. Extraordinary Memories for Exceptional Events

    Series: Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series

    Not all memories are created equal. Our memories for some very exceptional events seem to stand out in our minds, and as such they may form the very core of who we are.

    This book summarizes theories and data that provide insight into these extraordinary memories for exceptional events. Topics explored include flashbulb memories, the influence of emotion on memory, the bizarre imagery effect, the humor effect, the serial position effect, and the isolation effect.

  9. Memory and Aging

    This volume takes a contemporary look at the impact of aging on short-term and working memory, and on long-term explicit and implicit memory.

    World-renowned researchers present the latest neuroscientific data on the physiological and health perspectives, as well as the social, cultural, and cross-cultural consequences.

  10. From Mental Imagery to Spatial Cognition and Language

    Essays in Honour of Michel Denis

    Series: Psychology Press Festschrifts

    The nature of mental images and their relation to language has caused controversy amongst psychologists for years, and the so-called "imagery debate" is still unresolved. Fresh light is now being shed on this topic using recent findings in neuroscience and the development of behavioural studies. Reviewing state-of-the-art research in the field of imagery, visuo-spatial memory, spatial representation and language, with special emphasis on their interactions, the volume shows how, and to what extent, findings from the studies on imagery can positively influence and enrich other psychological areas.
