Dr. Annette Taylor's Encyclopedia of Human Memory will be published this summer.
"This encyclopedia comprehensively addresses one of the most critical components of human intelligence--memory. Comprising approximately 500 A-Z entries written by experts who have studied memory and its impacts, the work defines complex terminology for lay readers and includes answers to the most common questions regarding human memory. Readers will gain an understanding of the various psychological and physiological systems of memory, such as short-term or procedural memory; comprehend the principles that underlie effective encoding, storage, and construction of memories; and learn the truth about often misconceptualized conditions like amnesia or how our memories are stored in bits and pieces rather than linearly like a recorded tape of video."
