Memory and Amnesia provides a clear and comprehensive account of amnesia set in the context of our understanding of how normal memory operates. Part I provides the reader with an up-to-date survey of contemporary memory theories along with an account of the various methods for improving memory ability. Part II begins with an overview of memory assessment which incorporates all important new developments, and focuses on the nature and explanation of the amnesic syndrome.
A new chapter deals with the emerging field of memory disorders linked to frontal lobe dysfunction, related to which is an entirely new approach to the study of age-related memory loss. The account of dementia is extended and includes a discussion of comparisons between different forms of the illness. The chapters on transient amnesic states and on psychogenic states are fully updated (including discussion of the false memory debate), and the significant advances in memory remediation are discussed in the last chapter.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Here at last is a text on the topic of amnesia we can recommend to the student who asks, 'What is the first thing I should read? Where is an overview that doesn't get bogged down in details? How can this diverse field be viewed in its entirety?' Now we can direct them to Parkin's book and be assured that it will satisfy all their needs."
-Laird Cermak, Boston University School of Medicine (about the First Edition)."
"Most readers, regardless of background, will most likely be fascinated by the contents of this book, and many may be stimulated to follow up with more intensive study of memory and its disturbances."
-Contemporary Psychology (About the First Edition)."
