Learning and Memory
This is one of the few available texts that offers undergraduates and in-depth introduction to both learning and memory processes. Using data from both learning and memory experiments and citing both classic and contemporary studies, this exciting book illustrates how varios topics in learning and memory are related and how the theoretical perspectives in this area have evolved. Gordon's writing style is readable and comprehensive, with examples and illustrations designed to make the content understandable and interesting to students. This book should be of interest to students taking courses in learning and memory in departments of psychology.
