Memory: Foundations and Applications provides a thorough understanding of the science and practice of memory science. With unique applications ofámemory concepts toástudents' lives,á the author engages students to a deeper understanding of how memory works in everyday life.áThe book addresses the science of memory, what we know from both the point of view of cognitive psychology and from cognitive neuroscience. Examples and applications areáintegrated througout the text in a way that students can appreciate how memory works and how they might augment their own memory ability. The author presents four overarching themes that create a framework for the text: the active nature of learning and remembering, its status as a biological process, the multiple components ofámemory systems, and howáprinciples of learning and remembering can improve our individual ability to learn and remember.
