The fact that cognitive psychology has become largely concerned with a handful of laboratory tasks has brought expressions of concern and suggestions about how to place the field on a more solid footing. The view expressed here, however, is that the classic cognitive paradigms have become fascinating puzzles on which some of the best minds in the field have labored. An examination of the development of research in these areas yields many examples of the scientific method at its most sophisticated, as well as impressive examples of how theories and data can interact. Covering the whole temporal range of memory experiences, this volume provides a review of the major paradigms that have been used by experimental psychologists to study human memory.

About the Author:

Gary's paintings have won national and international awards, and his work has been purchased and showcased by corporations around the world. He has conducted workshops, demonstrations and lectures nationally and internationally since 1985. He is a fifteen-year signature member of the Colored Pencil Society of America and served on its founding Board of Directors for six years.

Review:

...a distinctive book about human memory. I know of nothing else quite like it....this book is a real winner. Certainly, psychologists studying human learning and memory will want to read it, and I suspect that it will be widely read by cognitive psychologists and often used as a textbook too. I can also recommend it for those outside cognitive psychology....a book that researchers in this field will definately want to own, that cognitive psychologists will want to read, and from which psychologists in many other areas could profit.
Contemporary Psychology

...provides a readable and thorough overview of common paradigms employed by human memory researchers over the past several decades....Because of its unique focus on memory tasks, this book could be a valuable supplementary text in an advanced undergraduate memory or cognitive psychology course or as a principal text in a graduate seminar on cognition.
CHOICE

...there is no doubt that the author has done an excellent job. The original findings in each case are clearly described and the main issues and interpretations well laid out. The main lines of subsequent research are traced and...the untenable nature of the original interpretation is demonstrated and a more plausible alternative is suggested.
European Journal of Cognitive Psychology
