This book explores the subject of human memory in all its dimensions - how it works physiologically and chemically, how it develops by conditioning and training, how it sometimes plays tricks on us to protect us, how it can fail through physiological damage, and what we can do if it does. It will be essential reading for students of psychology, nursing, medicine and other disciplines concerned with the understanding and management of human behavior. Nobody has done more in recent years to promote interest in the subject of memory than the psychologist Dr. Peter Marshall, Director of the Memory Research Institute and President of the Guild of Mnemonists. He is a former Research Psychologist at Royal Holloway, University of London.
