This cutting-edge book offers a theoretical account of the evolution of multiple memory systems of the brain. The authors conceptualize these memory systems from both behavioral and neurobiological perspectives, guided by three related principles. First, that our understanding of a wide range of memory phenomena can be advanced by breaking down memory into multiple forms with different operating characteristics. Second, that different forms of memory representation are supported by distinct brain pathways with circuitry and neural coding properties. Third, that the contributions of different brain systems can be compared and contrasted by distinguishing between dedicated (or specific) and elaborate (or general) memory systems. A primary goal of this work is to relate the neurobiological properties of dedicated and elaborate systems to their neuropsychological counterparts, and in so doing, account for the phenomenology of memory, from conditioning to conscious recollection.

Howard Eichenbaum is University Professor and Professor of Psychology at Boston University.Review:
"Psychologists Eichenbaum (Boston U.) and Cohen (U. of Illinois-Urbana- Champaign) explore the notion that memory is implemented in the brain by multiple systems operating in parallel, each with distinct operating characteristics and mediated by separate brain pathways. They consider the history and implications of the theory, the evidence that supports it, and the nature of the systems discovered so far. The theory has been developed through recent studies in cognitive neuroscience."--SciTech Book News
