The new edition of this comprehensive textbook on learning and memory offers an engaging and enhanced pedagogy. Instructors can assign the chapters they want from four distinctive modules - introduction, learning, memory, and integrative topics. Each chapter addresses behavioural processes, then the underlying neuroscience, then relevant clinical perspectives. The book is further distinguished by its full-colour presentation and coverage that includes comparisons between studies of human and nonhuman brains, and extended coverage of animal learning.With its modular organization, consistent chapter structure, and contemporary perspective, this groundbreaking survey is ideal for courses on learning and memory, and is easily adaptable to courses that focus on either learning or memory.
