The book examines how well we remember what we see. Research in human memory for visual material varies tremendously across the time scales, stimuli, and scenarios of interest. Because of these distinct pursuits, research in the field of 'visual memory' is in practice rather compartmentalized and as such is disseminated across a range of literatures. The Visual World in Memory pulls together this disparate field with a series of chapters, each written by a leading expert, that concisely present the state-of-the-science in all the areas of research. The result is a single source of information that bridges the divides that separate the field as a whole. Each chapter reviews and analyzes current theories and controversies regarding such issues as visual and spatial working memory, memory for visual features, conjunctions, objects, and locations, memory for faces, memory for real-world scenes, memory for visual events, the role of visual memory in motor planning and action, the relationship between visual memory, reference frames, and navigation, and visual imagery.

The rigorous discussion and analysis included in each chapter will appeal to established researchers and vision scientists whilst the breadth of the book will make it an ideal companion for students learning about memory.

About the Author:

James R. Brockmole is a Reader in the Department of Psychology at the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on understanding how human observers acquire information about objects and scenes in real time, how that information is retained in memory, and how stored knowledge about the visual world in turn guides behavior.

Review:

"[The Visual World in Memory] offers a focused collection of first-class reviews and will be a valued repository for scientists fascinated with the visual world in memory." – Ulrich K. H. Ecker, University of Western Australia, in Perception

"This book manages to present the most up to date research available in one single resource, something which has unfortunately been lacking in the visual cognition literature to date." – Helen Henshaw in The Psychologist

"The Visual World in Memory will be of interest to scientific cognitive psychology researchers for its ingenious methodologies and to researchers who want an overview of reasonably current work." - William A. Adams, in PsycCRITIQUES

"The Visual World in Memory offers both cognitive scientists and the interested lay-person an enjoyable stroll through the latest thinking on how we perceive the visual world. Brockmole has gathered some of the world's leading experts as tour guides. They provide a highly integrated and comprehensive update of current theory in visual cognition, including topics as wide-ranging as face recognition, scene analysis, and eyewitness memories." - Michael Tarr, Brown University
