about

This innovative textbook is the first to integrate learning and memory, behaviour, and cognition. It focuses on fascinating human research in both memory and learning (while also bringing in important animal studies) and brings the reader up to date with the latest developments in the subject. Students are encouraged to think critically: key theories and issues are looked at in detail; descriptions of experiments include why they were done and how examining the method can help evaluate competing viewpoints. By looking at underlying cognitive processes, students come away with a sense of learning and memory being interrelated actions taken by the same human being, rather than two separate activities. Lively and engaging writing is supported by lots of examples of practical applications that show the relevance of lab-based research to everyday life. Examples include treatments for phobias and autism, ways to improve eyewitness testimony, and methods of enhancing study techniques.
Psychologist Dr. David Lieberman writes best-selling, easy-to-understand, self-help books which identify and analyze problematic behaviors and present simple solutions for dealing with them.

Editorial Reviews

"David Lieberman, of the University of Stirling, attempts to integrate different facets of the subject, including learning and memory, and behavior and cognition. The text focuses on human research in both memory and learning and aims to encourage students to think critically. Key theories and issues are detailed, and the focus on underlying cognitive processes aims to offer insight into learning and memory as inter-related actions rather than two separate activities." --Times Higher Education
