Gluck, Mercado and Myers’ breakthrough first edition brought a long overdue modern perspective to the learning and memory textbook. It was the first book for the course developed from page one to account for the growing importance of neuroscience in the field, the first to compare brain studies and behavioral approaches in human and other animal species, and the first available in full-color throughout.
Rigorously updated, with a convenient new modular format, Learning and Memory, Second Edition, is unmatched at showing students where the study of learning and memory is and where it is heading. Requiring no prerequisite coursework, it connects learning, memory, and neuroscience in a way that fits your classroom.
