Why life speeds up as you get older : how memory shapes our past by Douwe Draaisma( Book )

91 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Douwe Draaisma, author of the internationally acclaimed Metaphors of Memory, explores the nature of autobiographical memory. Applying a unique blend of scholarship, poetic sensibility and keen observation he tackles such extraordinary phenomena as deja vu, near-death experiences, the memory feats of idiots savants and the effects of extreme trauma on memory recall. Raising almost as many questions as it answers, this book will not fail to touch you at the same time as it educates and entertains."--Jacket
The Nostalgia factory : memory, time and ageing by D Draaisma( )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Douwe Draaisma, a memory specialist, focuses here on memory in later life. He explains neurological phenomena without becoming lost in specialist terminology. This volume includes an interview with Oliver Sacks, who speaks of his own memory changes as he entered his sixties. Draaisma moves from anecdote to research and back, weaving stories and science into a description of the terrain of memory. He brings to light the 'reminiscence effect', just one of the unexpected pleasures of an ageing memory. The author writes about forgetfulness and dismantles the myth that mental gymnastics can improve memory. He presents a case in favor of the ageing mind and urges us to value the nostalgia that survives as recollection, to appreciate the intangible nature of past events, and to take pleasure in the consolation of reminiscing
Forgetting : myths, perils and compensations by Douwe Draaisma( )

27 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his highly praised book The Nostalgia Factory, renowned memory scholar Douwe Draaisma explored the puzzling logic of memory in later life with humor and deep insight. In this compelling new book he turns to the "miracle" of forgetting. Far from being a defect that may indicate Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, Draaisma claims, forgetting is one of memory's crucial capacities. In fact, forgetting is essential. Weaving together an engaging array of literary, historical, and scientific sources, the author considers forgetting from every angle. He pierces false cliches and asks important questions: Is a forgotten memory lost forever? What makes a colleague remember an idea but forget that it was yours? Draaisma explores "first memories" of young children, how experiences are translated into memory, the controversies over repression and "recovered" memories, and weird examples of memory dysfunction. He movingly examines the impact on personal memories when a hidden truth comes to light. In a persuasive conclusion the author advocates the undervalued practice of "the art of forgetting"--A set of techniques that assist in erasing memories, thereby preserving valuable relationships and encouraging personal contentment."
Disturbances of the mind by D Draaisma( Book )

43 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Korsakoff, Alois Alzheimer, James Parkinson, Hans Asperger and other eminent scientists, are all names which have become synonymous with a disease, a syndrome, or an autistic disorder. Although the names of these psychiatrists and neurologists are familiar, we often know little about the individuals themselves and the circumstances surrounding their discoveries. What exactly did they discover, and who were their patients? The author reconstructs the lives of these and eight other names from the science of mind and brain. Includes case histories of Asperger, Bonnet, Capgras, Clerambault, Korsakoff and Gilles de la Tourette syndromes; Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases; the areas of Broca and Brodmann; Jackson's epilepsy; and the Gage matrix
Metaphors of memory : a history of ideas about the mind by Douwe Draaisma( Book )

44 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is memory? It is at the same time ephemeral, unreliable and essential to everything we do. Without memory we lose our sense of identity, reasoning, even our ability to perform simple physical tasks. Yet it is also elusive and difficult to define, and throughout the ages philosophers and psychologists have used metaphors as a way of understanding it. This fascinating book takes the reader on a guided tour of these metaphors of memory from ancient times to the present day. Crossing continents and disciplines, it provides a compelling history of ideas about the mind by exploring the way these metaphors have been used - metaphors often derived from the techniques and instruments developed over the years to store information, ranging from wax tablets and books to photography, computers and even the hologram. Accessible and thought provoking, this book should be read by anyone who is interested in memory and the mind."--Jacket

Die Heimwehfabrik : wie das Gedächtnis im Alter funktioniert by Douwe Draaisma( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vom späten Erwachen der Erinnerung. Wird das Gedächtnis älterer Menschen wirklich schlechter - oder wird es nur anders? Das Gedächtnis älterer Menschen lässt rapide nach, sagt der oberf lächliche Beobachter. Douwe Draaisma, Heymanspreisträger und Professor für Psychologie mit Spezialgebiet Gedächtnisforschung, sieht das anders. Sicher, manche Funktionen des Gedächtnisses werden schlechter - andere dafür aber erwachen erst so richtig, wenn man in die Jahre kommt. Das aber können viele Menschen nicht akzeptieren. Deshalb setzen sie alles daran, ihr Gedächtnis in den gewohnten Funktionen fit zu halten, mit Mitteln vom Gedächtnistraining bis zu Vitaminpräparaten. Doch wie sinnvoll ist dies alles? Und sind die Voraussetzungen, auf denen diese basieren, die richtigen? Mit souveräner Kenntnis großer Zusammenhänge und dem nötigen Blick für kleine Details entkräftet Douwe Draaisma die Allgemeinplätze über das Alter und erzählt die wahre Geschichte des älter werdenden Gehirns. Über die Ungreif barkeit der Erinnerung, den Markt des großen Vergessens und über das Heimweh nach der Welt, die nur noch in der Erinnerung lebt. Aber auch über die unerwarteten Freuden, die ein älter werdendes Gedächtnis beschert, wie den sogenannten Reminiszenzeffekt, der dazu führt, dass Erinnerungen an die Jugend oft mit neuer Kraft zurückkehren. Draaismas Die Heimwehfabrik macht deutlich, dass die Zeit nicht nur etwas mit dem Gedächtnis macht - das Gedächtnis macht auch etwas mit der Zeit
