Memories are Made of This: The Biological Building Blocks of Memory

 
9781422359648: Memories are Made of This: The Biological Building Blocks of Memory

Every memory, from our first recollection of a family event, to our response to the ring of a doorbell, defines who we are. Without memory constantly linking the threads of our present, past & future, we would not have a personal history, or know how to think or behave. But why, if remembering is so ordinary, do we momentarily forget the name of a loved one, or struggle to find an answer that we think we know? How long do different memories last? And what do genes contribute to the process? Weaving the history of ideas about memory with rich personal anecdote & cutting-edge scientific research, this brilliant work investigates these & other intriguing questions. "A wonderfully personal, interesting & enjoyable overview of modern studies of memory."
