Behavioral and Neural Aspects of Learning and Memory: Proceedings of a Royal Society Discussion Meeting Held on 1 and 2 February 1990
This timely volume explores the interrelationships between neural function and learning, with reference to such topics as imprinting, food-gathering behaviors and conditioning in a wide range of animals, including humans and non-human primates. The role of the hippocampus in memory functions is also discussed. All the contributions are written by international authorities and provide up-to-date, concise accounts of current developments. The book will serve as a valuable resource for those working in and teaching psychology, animal behavior, and neuroscience.
