Learning and Memory: From Brain to Behavior is a new textbook from Catherine E. Myers, editor-in-chief of Memory Loss & the Brain, and Mark A. Gluck, the newsletter's publisher. The textbook provides an accessible introduction to learning and memory, including the latest brain research and implications for various neurological and psychological disorders. Although targeted at college students, the book assumes no scientific background, and can be read by anyone interested in how memory works.
Each chapter introduces readers to some aspect of learning and memory behavior, reviews the underlying brain mechanisms, and discusses how various neurological and psychiatric disorders alter these behaviors.
