|Chapters in this volume discuss strategies people use in responding to memory queries- whether and how to access memory and how to translate retrieved products into responses. Coverage includes memory for ongoing events and memory for prospective events-how we remember to do future intended actions. Individual differences in memory skill is explored across people and situations, with special consideration given to the elderly population and how strategies at encoding and retrieval can offset what would otherwise be declining memory. The final chapters explore individual differences from an expertise angle-how expertise can both facilitate and obstruct efficient use of memory and how memory skills evolve with expertise in specific domains. |
* An intergrative view of memory, metamemory, judgment and decision-making, and individual differences
* Relevant to both applied concerns and basic research
* Articles written by expert contributors
From the Publisher:
This book discusses memory as a skill, in which decision making at encoding and retrieval affects memory outcome. In considering the contexts in which memory is used, Skill and Strategy in Memory Use helps to answer such questions as: how do students decide if they've mastered material for an upcoming test? If asked where I live, how do I decide on a street address or city name? What influences my selection in a criminal lineup besides actual memory of the perpetrator? How do I remember to buy a present for future special occasions? And why do expert golfers better remember courses they've played than amateur golfers?|Coverage includes memory for ongoing events and memory for prospective events - how we remember to do future intended actions.
