For UG Memory modules or those covering memory in a Cognitive Psychology module. Memory and amnesia can also be studied within neuroscience at PG level for which some chapters are relevant. A supplementary text from Michael Eysenck and David Groome, authors of our Cognitive Psychology Revisiting the Classics series. Mike Eysenck is one of the most well-known and successful authors in psychology and is the lead author of Eysenck and Keane Cognitive Psychology (Psych Press - Routledge), the current edition of which has sold in excess of 250k pounds in two years. David Groome is also a long time Psychology Press author, editing and contributing to a range of introductory texts in Cognitive Psychology. This text focuses on the nature of forgetting and memory impairment exploring both the positive/voluntary and pathological/involuntary aspects of forgetting through disorders such as PTSD, amnesia, anxiety, depression and dementia. The text explores some popular and familiar areas of memory which are covered on memory modules on Psychology undergraduate degrees such as Autobiographical Forgetting, Motivated Forgetting and Eyewitness Forgetting. The aim of the text is to provide a more detailed insight into these areas than would be available to students on their Memory module and make this text a key read for students looking to expand their knowledge in this area. Cognitive Psychology modules also cover memory in a slightly more diluted way but this text could certainly see some interest from these modules which attract much larger student numbers.
