In this thoroughly up-to-date book, author Ian Neath offers readers an engaging exploration of the wonders of accumulated knowledge. With an emphasis on theory and models as well as on research, Neath maintains an ideal balance between historically significant findings and current, state of the art research. He vividly illustrates the process of designing and conducting diagnostic research, and in the process gives readers an appreciation of experimental design. The various theories of memory are introduced, with an examination of how each has been developed and evaluated.
