I had this book a time or two in college. First for learning and memory, once in a pathology class and again in a neuro class. It's a great reference book, very thorough and has, amazing not become overtly dated in the time since it provided me with information.
There were a few places where it overstepped its scope in making assertions that are less grounded in science than hardcore graduate professors might like, but ultimately it was beneficial to have that information presented.

The brain is a very difficult subject to learn, to understand. But with Hudmon's "Learning and Memory" book, teens' understanding of the brain broadens and it gives a clear view about a main source for our living, what helps us move and talk, what helps us learn and remember. 5 stars!
