About this title

Synopsis:

This fully revised and updated third edition of the highly acclaimed Memory in the Real World includes recent research in all areas of everyday memory. Distinguished researchers have contributed new and updated material in their own areas of expertise. The controversy about the value of naturalistic research, as opposed to traditional laboratory methods, is outlined, and the two approaches are seen to have converged and become complementary rather than antagonistic.

The editors bring together studies on many different topics such as memory for plans and actions, for names and faces, for routes and maps, life experiences and flashbulb memory, and eyewitness memory. Emphasis is also given to the role of memory in consciousness and metacognition. New topics covered in this edition include life span development of memory, collaborative remembering, deja-vu and memory dysfunction in the real world.

Memory in the Real World will be of continuing appeal to students and researchers in the area.

About the Author:

Gillian Cohen is a Cognitive Psychologist who held research posts in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford and more recently was Professor of Psychology at the Open University. She has had visiting appointments at Oxford, Buckingham and Louvian. Her research has focused on memory, especially memory for names and the effects of normal ageing on memory.

Martin Conway is Director of the Institute of Psychological Sciences at the University of Leeds and an ESRC Professorial fellow. He is a world-leading researcher of human memory. His main research interest at present is the relationship between memory and the self, and the breakdown of this relationship in brain damage and psychological interest.
