Understanding Memory

Carolyn Ensley

  • A dedicated focus on practical application using relatable examples and DIY experiments to effectively demonstrate not only what students are learning, but why they are learning it.
  • Inclusion of neuroscience is uniquely integrated throughout the text to help explain how and why memory works rather than in a single dedicated chapter.
  • Blending of established and emerging theories give students a full understanding of the psychology of memory by covering classic theories as well as new ones that challenge the status quo.
  • Intensive in-text pedagogy gives students ample thought-provoking opportunities to get involved and to understand practical application of the theories presented.
  • - Case studies and relevant examples prelude each chapter to introduce the topic in an interesting and informative way.
  • - DIY experiment boxes provide a practical demonstration of concepts that students can experience for themselves.
  • - Memory activities end all chapters with an activity that students can use to improve their memory, and that also ties in to chapter content.
  • Robust ancillary suite provides the most extensive instructor resources available.
  • Discovery labs that allow students to experience well-known experiments that will deepen their understanding of core concepts.
