A fascinating and illuminating debate on the cognitive architecture of long term memory. Is memory best regarded as comprising multiple independent systems, as a processing framework, tapped via different levels of processing, or as a complex function which can be used in a flexible task-appropriate manner? Also, how do researchers and theoreticians explain why certain individuals have better memories for some types of information such as names, faces, auditory, and visual information, than other individuals?
In Memory: Systems, Process, or Function? international researchers and theorists present stimulating, self-contained, and balanced summaries of the various theoretical and empirical positions that shape the most controversial and contested areas of psychology research today. Students and researchers alike in cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroanatomy will find this volume in The Oxford Debates in Psychology series and interesting and informative work. The book concludes with an integrated synopsis and appraisal of the different facets of this fascinating debate.
