‘Behavioral Neuroscience of Learning and Memory’ (PDF) brings together the expertise and opinions of some of the world’s foremost neuroscientists in the field of learning and memory research. The volume offers a broad coverage of contemporary research and thinking in this field, emphasizing both on well established topics such as the medial temporal lobe memory system, along with emerging areas of research such as the role of memory in decision making and the mechanisms of perceptual learning. Key intersecting themes include the cellular and molecular mechanisms of memory formation, the multiplicity of memory systems in the brain, and how technological innovation is driving discovery. Unusually for a volume of this kind, this volume collects research from both humans and animals—often relatively separate areas of discourse—to give a more comprehensive and collected view of the field. The book will be of curiosity to both established researchers who intend to broaden their knowledge of topics outside of their specific areas of expertise, and for students who want a resource to help them make sense of the huge scientific literature on this subject.
