This edited volume summarizes findings on the brain systems that underlie memory. The book reviews progress in understanding forms of memory in animals and humans and the interaction of cortical and sub cortical systems in the regulation of memory.
This edited volume summarizes recent findings of leading researchers investigating the brain systems that underlie memory. The book reviews recent progress in understanding forms of memory in animals and humans and the interaction of cortical and subcortical systems in the regulation of memory. Special emphasis is given to the development of neural network models that attempt to link systems in the regulation of memory. It will be an invaluable source for cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and students interested in memory.
