This key text on Memory covers one of the core topics of all undergraduate psychology degrees. Memory and Remembering fills a clear gap in the market for a text which integrates laboratory, clinical and naturalistic memory findings and models in a clear and accessible way. Throughout, theories and findings are illustrated with every day examples which enable the student to relate conceptually difficult topics to their own experience and to understand memory in a broader context.
