Now available as a low priced paperback, this is an innovative, readable and engaging companion to the language of memory research. It consists of over 130 entries, bound within a coherent conceptual framework. Each entry starts with a definition, or a set of definitions, followed byin-depth and provocative discussion of the origin, meaning, usage and applicability of ideas and problems central to the neuroscience of memory and scientific culture at large. The entries, linked by webs of associations, can be read and enjoyed, and provide a versatile tool kit; a source fordefinitions, information and further reading; a trigger for contemplation, discussion and experimentation; and an aid to study, teaching and debate in classes and seminars. The text is supported by an extensive reference listing, and there is a comprehensive subject index, incorporating a muchwider range of terms relevant to the field. Memory from A to Z provides a unique, highly valuable introduction to the field of memory for students and researchers approaching the subject for the first time, while at the same time serving and stimulating the more experienced.
Yadin Dudai is a Professor of Neurobiology, Institute of Brain Research, The Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel.
