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 ofmemory. Special emphasis is given to the development of neural network models that attempt to link cells to systems in the representation of memory. The book will be an invaluable source for cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and students interested in this active and exciting area ofresearch.
James McGaugh, Norman Weinberger, and Gary Lynch are all at the University of California, Irvine.

From Our Editors

This volume is the third in a series. Like its predecessors, Neurobiology of Learning and Memory and Memory Systems of the Brain, this book is the outgrowth of a conference that was organized by the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory of the University of California, Irvine.

Editorial Reviews

"Consists of 21 contributions by well-known experts on topics ranging from the neurobiology of learning in simple organisms and the various forms of normal and impaired human memory to theories on the neural basis of learning and network models. The papers are state of the art in eachdiscipline. The book is strongly recommended. This work contains just the right combination of novelty and continuity." --Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders
