Foundations of Human Memory (FHM) introduces the reader to the scientific study of human memory, from its origins in the early experiments by Ebbinghaus and Muller in the late 19th century, to modern day neural network and computational models that can explain a wide range of memory phenomena. A distinguishing feature of FHM is its emphasis on the dialogue between theory and experiment, and how this dialogue has led to rapid progress in our understanding of human memory in the last few decades.

Advance Praise for Foundations of Human Memory:
"This volume provides a thorough, rigorous and yet eminently readable account of scientific research on human memory following in the great tradition begun by Ebbinghaus. Michael Kahana reviews both data and theory on the classic tasks of paired-associate learning, free recall and serial recall, providing a comprehensive treatment that all researchers interested in the scientific study of memory will want to read. The book brings together a huge amount of information and represents an important scholarly achievement."Henry L. Roediger, III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Washington University at St. Louis"In this book, Michael Kahana gives a beautifully lucid treatment of how theories of memory have evolved in response to experimental data, from the verbal learning era to the present. Combining mathematical rigor and extraordinary historical scholarship, Kahana has created the first truly indispensable memory textbook of the 21st century."Kenneth Norman, Associate Professor of Psychology, Princeton University
Michael Kahana, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania where he teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses on human learning and memory. Kahana was the 2010 recipient of the Troland Research Award from the U. S. National Academy of Sciences.
