Recent years have seen major developments in our understanding of how memory works. Theoretical Aspects of Memory gives a clear introduction by some of the world's leading experts.
The first two chapters set past theorizing about memory in a historical context and identify the major aspects of memory to be captured by any theoretical account. Later chapters go on to discuss theoretical accounts of working memory, the development of memory, implicit memory and context-dependent memory. A final section discusses the respective strengths and problems of naturalistic and laboratory research on memory.
