This important reference and text brings together leading neuroscientists to describe current approaches to the study of memory. The third edition gives particular attention to neuroimaging, which has emerged in the past decade as one of the most active areas of research in the field. Other major approaches covered are lesions; electrophysiology; single-unit recording; pharmacology; and molecular genetics, including new work with genetically modified mice. Chapters are organized into three sections, presenting state-of-the-art studies of memory in humans, nonhuman primates, and rodents and birds. Each chapter explicates the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of the authors' research program, reviews salient empirical findings, and identifies promising directions for future investigation. Featured are more than 50 illustrations, including three in color.

"This impressive third edition covers a wide range of topics in an ever more sophisticated field. The volume's scope and the care with which it has been edited will once again make it a well-thumbed standard on many a bookshelf. Written by leading international figures in memory research as well as up-and-coming young investigators, chapters examine current issues and debates in a refreshingly open manner. Resolving these areas of controversy will be the mainspring of future advances in the field."--Professor Richard Morris, DPhil, FRS, Department of Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK
"The science of memory has made remarkable progress during recent years, largely because of its now firmer-than-ever connections to the brain. This outstanding volume provides up-to-date and highly authoritative coverage of the striking progress in the field, in the areas of neuroimaging of human memory, neuropsychological analyses of brain-damaged patients, and neurobiological studies of non-human primates and other animals. Written by leading experts at the cutting edge of contemporary research, the third edition of Neuropsychology of Memory, like its predecessors, will prove an indispensable guide for both novices and veterans in memory research."--Endel Tulving, PhD, Rotman Research Institute of Baycrest Centre
