Reorganized, Modular Table of Contents
The Second Edition is divided into four modules (Introduction Module, Learning Module, Memory Module, Integrative Topics Module), allowing instructors the flexibility to teach either learning or memory first. Additionally, classical conditioning material appears earlier so that the first six chapters of the text now align with traditional learning courses.
Still the Only Full-Color Textbook for the Course
Learning and Memory includes original anatomical art, state-of-the-art brain scans, and detailed figures, with a consistent color scheme throughout that help students with difficult topics.
Expanded and Revised Integrative Topics Coverage
The new Integrative Topics Module ties together interdisciplinary facets of learning and memory, drawing on material from core chapters of the text.
Expanded “Test Your Knowledge” Pedagogy
“Test Your Knowledge” boxes now follow key sections of all chapters to better assist students in monitoring comprehension and retention of material.
Thoroughly Updated Content
The new edition incorporates a wide range of new advances and findings from the past five years.
• Chapter 6 has been reorganized to reflect new findings on different brain substrates storing the stimulus-response vs. the response-outcome components of the learned association.
• Chapter 7 features new information on patient HM, whose identity was made public in 2008.
