The Wiley Blackwell Handbook on the Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory presents a comprehensive overview of the latest, cutting–edge neuroscience research being done relating to the study of human memory and cognition. Featuring contributions from an international cast of leading experts in episodic, semantic, and working memory research, the chapters in this handbook summarize the innovative work currently being done in the field by scientists and their peers in each contributor s area of expertise. A wide range of methodological approaches are addressed, including fMRI, EEG, TMS, and neuropsychology with a strong emphasis on the latest analysis techniques within each of these measurement approaches. Scholarly yet readily accessible to those with minimal experience in the field,The Wiley Blackwell Handbook on the Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory is an invaluable reference to the current state and future potential of human memory research.
