Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory

The field of cognitive neuroscience has grown as technological advances make non-invasive measurement of human brain activity more accessible. In the new textbook, Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory (Cambridge University Press, 2017), Associate Professor of Psychology Scott D. Slotnick provides the first comprehensive and up-to-date treatment on the cognitive neuroscience of memory. Topics include cognitive neuroscience techniques and human brain mechanisms underlying long-term memory success, long-term memory failure, working memory, implicit memory, and memory and disease. In his analysis, Slotnick questions popular views, rather than simply assuming they are correct. Slotnick is also editor-in-chief of the journal Cognitive Neuroscience.
