Byrne. This concise version provides a truly authoritative collection of overview articles representing fundamental reviews of our knowledge of this central cognitive function of animal brains. It will be an affordable and accessible reference for scientists and students in all areas of neuroscience and psychology. There is no other single-volume reference with such authority and comprehensive coverage and depth currently available. It represents an authoritative selection of the fundamental chapters from the most comprehensive source of information about learning and memory ever assembled, "Learning and Memory - A Comprehensive Reference" (Academic Press Mar 2008). It represents outstanding scholarship, each chapter is written by a leader in the field and an expert in the topic area. All topics represent the most up to date research. It is full color throughout and heavily illustrated.

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
