This edited volume summarizes recent findings of leading researchers investigating the brain systems that underlie memory. The book reviews recent progress in understanding forms of memory in animals and humans and the interaction of cortical and subcortical systems in the regulation of memory. Special emphasis is given to the development of neural network models that attempt to link cells to systems in the representation of memory. The book will be an invaluable source for cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and students interested in this active and exciting area of research.

"Consists of 21 contributions by well-known experts on topics ranging from the neurobiology of learning in simple organisms and the various forms of normal and impaired human memory to theories on the neural basis of learning and network models. The papers are state of the art in each discipline. The book is strongly recommended. This work contains just the right combination of novelty and continuity." --Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders "Consists of 21 contributions by well-known experts on topics ranging from the neurobiology of learning in simple organisms and the various forms of normal and impaired human memory to theories on the neural basis of learning and network models.
