Description

Based on the 3rd annual conference of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. Leading researchers in psychology and neuroscience consider current findings on brain organization and its role in memory, with special reference to the cerebral cortex. The book is aimed at cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and their graduate students.show more
