Vision and memory are two of the most intensively studied topics in psychology and neuroscience. The present book concerns the interaction between vision and memory: How do we remember what we see? And how does our memory for the visual world influence subsequent perception and action? topics in psychology and neuroscience, and the intersection etween them-visual memory-is emerging as a fertile ground for research. Certain memory systems appear to specialize in This book provides a state-of-the-art account of visual memory systems. Each chapter is written by an internationally renowned researcher, who has made seminal contributions to the topic. The chapters are comprehensive, providing both a broad overview of each topic and a summary of the latest research. They also present new perspectives that advance our theoretical understanding of visual memory and suggest directions for future research. After an introductory overview by the editors, chapters address visual sensory memory (iconic memory), visual short-term memory, and the relationship between visual memory and eye movements. Visual long-term memory is then reviewed from several different perspectives, including memory for natural scenes, the relationship between visual memory and object recognition, and associative learning. The final chapters discuss the neural mechanisms of visual memory and neuropsychological deficits in visual memory. This book is a comprehensive guide to visual memory research that will be a valuable resource for both students and professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a superb and authoritative book on the cognitive science of visual memory. It offers a unique and timely collection of reviews from the latest experts. Anyone with an interest in short and long-term memory, perception, and imagery would do well to ground themselves by reading this fine overview of the cutting-edge work. * Earl K. Miller, Picower Professor of Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology *
Visual memory is a fascinating topic, exploring the varied formats in which we represent the world around us and retrieve past experiences. This is a definitive survey of our current knowledge in the field, written by experts who themselves did much of the research. It is both a scholarly resource and an interesting and varied set of chapters just to dip into and read. * Anne Treisman, Professor of Psychology, Princeton University *
In this excellent book, many of the leaders in the field survey most of the important topics in visual memory. I was impressed by the real effort to go beyond the authors' own positions, giving balanced views of controversial topics and providing useful historical grounding. This is likely to be the go-to volume on visual memory for years to come. * Jeremy M. Wolfe, Professor of Ophthalomology, Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women's Hospital *
