  • The strengths and weaknesses of human memory have fascinated people for hundreds of years, so it is not surprising that memory research has remained one of the most flourishing areas in science. During the last decade, however, a genuine science of memory has emerged, resulting in research and theories that are rich, complex, and far reaching in their implications. Endel Tulving and Fergus Craik, both leaders in memory research, have created this highly accessible guide to their field. In each chapter, eminent researchers provide insights into their particular areas of expertise in memory research. Together, the chapters in this handbook lay out the theories and presents the evidence on which they are based, highlights the important new discoveries, and defines their consequences for professionals and students in psychology, neuroscience, clinical medicine, law, and engineering.

  • Qu'avons-nous vécu ? appris ? Qui sommes-nous ? La mémoire est cette pierre angulaire qui permet de nous souvenir et de décrypter le monde qui nous entoure, mais aussi de faire des choix en fonction de notre histoire et de nous projeter dans le futur. Ces dernières années, nos connaissances sur la structure et le fonctionnement de la mémoire humaine ont beaucoup progressé. Les maladies de la mémoire (syndromes amnésiques et maladie d'Alzheimer essentiellement) nous renseignent, mieux que toute autre démonstration, sur cette fonction mentale au coeur de notre identité. Véritable synthèse des connaissances actuelles, cet ouvrage permet de comprendre la mise en place progressive de la mémoire chez l'enfant comme ses modifications au cours du vieillissement.
