||Now in its fully revised and updated third edition, this classic reference and text brings together leading neuroscientists to describe current approaches to the study of memory. The volume has been completely rewritten to reflect the last decade's tremendous advances in the field--in particular, the emergence of neuroimaging as one of the most active areas of research. 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 the latest empirical findings, and identifies salient directions for future investigation. Included are more than 50 illustrations.
