Synopsis : This encyclopedia comprehensively addresses one of the most critical components of human intelligence-memory. Comprising approximately 500 A-Z entries written by experts who have studied memory and its impacts, the work defines complex terminology for lay readers and includes answers to the most common questions regarding human memory. Readers will gain an understanding of the various psychological and physiological systems of memory, such as short-term or procedural memory; comprehend the principles that underlie effective encoding, storage, and construction of memories; and learn the truth about often misconceptualized conditions like "amnesia" or how our memories are stored in bits and pieces rather than linearly like a recorded tape or video. This set is ideal for high school students writing term papers or studying for advanced examinations such as Advanced Placement (AP) in psychology. The volumes also provide a breadth of information invaluable to family members, friends, and caretakers of individuals who suffer from various memory disorders, including descriptions of major disorders, explanations of specific memory deficits, strategies for memory improvement, and information on the parts of the brain that access and store memory as well as the types of tests used to assess memory loss. Also included are biographies of key contributors to the field of cognitive psychology, and to the area of memory in particular.
Critique: "Despite the complexity of the human memory, Encyclopedia of Human Memory does a brilliant job of approaching this abstract topic and making it accessible to the layperson...This encyclopedia set would be a good addition for public, high school, and undergraduate." - Booklist "The Encyclopedia of Human Memory (EOHM) is a unique three-volume publication that addresses a wide variety of topics relevant to human memory. The text is generally nontechnical and aimed at the layperson, presenting very readable, accurate information with references... EOHM includes coverage of 500 topics in 1,262 pages, resulting, on average, in more extensive information for each topic... Highly recommended." - Choice "The Encyclopedia of Human Memory provides a useful package of updated information on human memory suitable for public and lower-level academic libraries." - Reference Reviews
