Wiley, Apr 15, 2008 - Psychology - 240 pages
Involuntary memory was identified by the pioneering memory researcher Hermann Ebbinghaus more than a century ago, but it was not until very recently that cognitive psychologists began to study this memory phenomenon. This book is the first to examine key topics and cutting-edge research in involuntary memory. Topics discussed include involuntary memories in everyday life, across the life span, and in the laboratory; the special ways in which involuntary memories sometimes manifest themselves such as in voluntary remembering, or in clinical syndromes like posttraumatic stress disorder; and a number of theoretical treatments.
The authors present innovative research on topics such as autobiographical memory; consciousness and memory; aging and memory; depression; and psychosis. With a balance of research and applications, this work will educate and ignite research and ideas on this important topic.
