About this title

From Library Journal:

Physician Rosenfield's intention is to challenge localization theory, which hypothesizes that memories are permanently stored in specific areas of the brain. Rosenfield presents evidence that memories are not fixed images but instead past experiences altered to fit the present circumstances. Rosenfield first reinterprets clinical studies in brain research previously used to support localization theory; he then summarizes David Marr's work in artificial intelligence and Gerald Edelman's theory of Neural Darwinism to support his alternative theory. This latter information is highly technical and therefore difficult to comprehend in Rosenfield's brief descriptions. Of interest primarily to scholars and informed laypersons; recommended for larger collections. Kim Banks, Columbia Univ. Libs., New York
