As author Bennett Schwartz says in Memory: Foundations and Applications, it is hard to imagine an aspect of psychology more fundamental than memory. This unique text covers key memory models, theories, and experiments, but goes a step further to demonstrate how students can apply these concepts to their everyday lives and improve their own ability to learn and remember. A new, three-pronged organization opens the text with an overview of the psychological science of Memory, builds expertise in advanced topics, and then allows the reader to think about how memory research can benefit society. Neuroscience research is integrated throughout each chapter to demonstrate our understanding of where memory processes occur and how researchers use data to shape memory theories.

New to the Fourth Edition: New chapters on memory science's relevance to the legal system, memory issues in psychiatric disorders, and application of memory research to improving the efficiency of one's own memory.Reorganized chapter on memory development and an enlarged section on prospective memory now combined with the chapter on metamemory.Updated sections on cognitive maps, autobiographical memory and emotion, and expanded discussion of the memory component of Alzheimer's disease.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Bennett L. Schwartz's book, Memory: Foundations and Applications is the most comprehensive text on cognitive memory and application that I have found and used in both my graduate and undergraduate courses. Beginning at the basic and fundamental understanding of the types of memory and continuing to the more advanced discovery of up to date application, this text is perfect for really knowing how memory systems work. -- Michael E. Cox
Schwartz's Memory: Foundations and Applications brings the modern world of memory research into clear focus with engaging examples, a strong emphasis on real-world applications of memory, and opportunities for students to learn as they explore the text.
-- Geoffrey O'Shea
This text does an excellent job of conveying important concepts, cutting-edge research, and tying both to real-world applications. It is written clearly and at the perfect level for graduate students with a variety of backgrounds.
-- Rebecca G. Deason
