Review:

"I think [this volume] is exciting and has high utility, particularly now. The field of learning and memory is arguably now the strongest example of an inter-disciplinary field within the neurosciences and psychology, and the fruitfulness of that convergence is likely to only grow in the coming years. Having one volume that ties together these elements and is up to date is very useful. The scope is impressively appropriate." Chaeron Myme, Oberlin College "The authors represent a "who's who" of learning and memory research. It is an excellent choice of topics and exquisite selection of authors. It covers the area well, the chosen topics includes classical ones as well as hot ones." Joseph Huston, University of Duesseldorf, Germany "There is a need for this book. There is no comparable book on the market. [The choice of topics is] excellent. Editors and authors are very appropriate." Avy Susswein, Bar Ilan University, Israel "This looks amazing! I want this book!" Lila Davachi, New York University
