Preview

The term ‘episodic memory’ refers to our memory for unique, personal experiences, that we can date at some point in our past — our first day at school, the day we got married. Episodic memory is a topic of interest to psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers. How are such memories stored in the brain, why do certain memories disappear (especially those from early in childhood), what causes false memories (memories of events we erroneously believe have really taken place)? Since this book was first published, few books have been published on this topic. In recent years however, many of the assumptions made about episodic memory have had to be reconsidered as a result of new techniques, which have allowed us a far deeper understanding of episodic memory. In this book three researchers in the topic of memory have brought together a team of contributors from the fields of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience, to present an account of what we know about this fundamentally important topic.
