What is memory and where in the brain is it stored? How is memory storage accomplished? Two scientists responsible for some of the fundamental research in the field answer these key questions in Memory, the first book for a general readership to offer an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of memory from molecules and cells to brain systems and cognition.

"A masterly and enthralling synthesis."
Torsten Wiesel, Professor Emeritus of Neurobiology, Rockefeller University
"No one with a pretension to culture-from pupils at school to emeritus professors-should be without this brilliantly written account of one of the major and most engrossing and elusive characteristics of the brain-memory."
Semir Zeki, Professor of Neurobiology, University of London
"From Ebbinghaus to a knockout mouse, Squire and Kandel frame the major questions we have about memory and explain how they are being answered. A lucid and engaging book by two grandmasters of the field."
Samuel H. Barondes, Director of the Center for Neurobiology and Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, author of Mood Genes and Molecules and Mental Illness
"In a book that is as fascinating as it is authoritative, Larry Squire and Eric Kandel explain the insights and breakthroughs that have illuminated the mysteries of memory . . . essential reading for anyone who has ever wondered about how we remember or why we forget."
Daniel L. Schacter, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of Searching for Memory
"Few areas of neuroscience are ready to boast of an understanding that spans from molecules to minds. Memory is ready, and Squire and Kandel, two of the leading researchers who got us there, take us on a delightful journey, explaining not just current facts but also the often fascinating history behind the big discoveries. I loved it and recommend this very readable and beautifully illustrated book to all who want to know how memory works."
Joseph LeDoux, Henry and Lucy Moses Professor of Science, New York University, author of The Emotional Brain
"A thoroughly up-to-date, comprehensive and engaging introduction to the neuroscience of memory."
