about

Identification of Neural Markers Accompanying Memoryis a fresh and novel volume of memory study, providing up-to-date and comprehensive information for both students and researchers focused on the identification of neural markers accompanying memory. Contributions by experts in specific areas of memory study provide background on and definitions of memory, memory alterations, and the brain areas involved in memory and its related processes, such as consolidation, retrieval, forgetting, amnesia, and antiamnesiac effects. With coverage of the principal neurotransmitters related to memory, brain disorders presenting memory alterations, and available treatments and with discussion of neural markers as new targets for the treatment of memory alterationsIdentification of Neural Markers Accompanying Memoryis a necessary and timely work for researchers in this growing field.

Editorial Reviews

"...delivers concise up-to-date information for students in neuroscience with clearly demarcated chapters authored by experts in their respective fields..." "Pharmacologists, neurologists, and psychologists summarize the current status of research into memory for students in these and related disciplines. The topics include neurotransmitters and memory, the involvement of glutamate in learning and memory, using the attribute model to design optimal memory tests for rodent models,."--ProtoView.com, April 2014
