In eight chapters by leading researchers, Memory for Action presents our actual knowledge on memory for actions and the opposing explanaions for these phenomena. It gives an overview of the results from laboratory research on action memory and on memory for activities in social contexts, and presents recent results on memory for intended actions. Additionally, these results are put in relation to the information and to the brain modules which are necessary for successful control of actions.

"Zimmer and Cohen's lively volume provides an overview of current knowledge in the area, followed by chapters in which prominent researchers advocate their own views and comment on the views of others. The book does an excellent job of conveying the interest and excitement of research on this important topic."--Fergus Craik, Professor of Psychology, University of Toronto
