9780198570394: The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory

Working memory has been one of the most intensively studied systems in cognitive psychology. It is only relatively recently however that researchers have been able to study the neural processes might underlye working memory, leading to a proliferation of research in this domain.

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory brings together world class researchers from around the world to summarize our current knowledge of this field, and directions for future research. An historical opening chapter by Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch sets the context for the subsequent chapters. The scope of the book is exceptionally broad, providing a showcase for leading edge research on all contemporary concepts of working memory, using techniques from experimental psychology, from single cell recording, from neuropsychology, from cognitive neuroimaging and from computational modelling.

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory will be an important reference text for all those seeking an authoritative and comprehensive synthesis of this field.

Review:


"...serves to demonstrate the broad explanatory power of the working-memory concept, as well as its continued experimental appeal. The essays are generally well written and engaging...You would definitely come away from it with a wealth of fresh perspectives and new directions."--The Psychologist

"In sum, Osaka, Logie, and D Esposito have done an outstanding job of bringing together a series of interesting chapters on the topic of WM. The book captures a number of important
themes that are currently running through contemporary research on WM. This volume should be required reading for anyone interested in the current state of the field." --Cortex
