Review quote

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is involved in memory research. It brings together recent work in a broad area and the treatment is clear and authoritative. Final year undergraduates and post-graduates should also find many of the chapters intelligible and useful. * A.R. Mayes, Neuropsychologia, Vol. 32, No. 8 *show more
