Memory observed : remembering in natural contexts by Ulric Neisser( Book )

23 editions published between 1982 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains 44 selections, each lending support to Dr Neissser's view that progress in understanding human memory will require a new emphasis on observations made in the everyday world rather than in the psychological laboratory. This volume makes a significant contribution to the literature on human memory, bringing together classic essays, new translations of important papers by Freud and Stern, and many previously unpublished studies. As a supplementary text, Memory Observed is suitable for courses in human memory, learning, and cognition
The rising curve : long-term gains in IQ and related measures by Ulric Neisser( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long time now, intelligence and achievement tests have been cast as the bearers of bad news. In The Bell Curve, R. Herrnstein and C. Murray (see record 1994-98748-000) argued that there are sharp limits on the intelligence of most of the population; they also noted that the test scores of several minority groups have been chronically low. But the trends documented here tell a different story. The authors show that intelligence test scores are going up everywhere in the world; what's more, the Black-White gap in the school achievement of American children has closed substantially in recent years. Authors from the fields of psychology, sociology, psychometrics, and nutrition present and defend different interpretations of these findings. Do the IQ gains reflect genuine gains in intelligence? Are they due to cultural changes, better schools, increased test sophistication, or improved diet and health? Were the government programs established during the "War on Poverty" partly responsible for the school gains of minority children in the 1970s. The final section addresses the issue: Will the different birth rates of different social classes inevitably produce a "dysgenic trend," as Herrnstein and Murray have claimed?

Remembering reconsidered : ecological and traditional approaches to the study of memory( Book )

32 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Remembering Reconsidered, the new ecologically oriented study of memory makes contact with more traditional approaches. The emerging result may be what several of the authors have begun to call 'functionalism': a concern with the adaptive significance of memory in ordinary life coupled with a careful analysis of the variables on which it depends. In different ways, the chapters reflect this concern. The editors bring together a diverse collection of studies on remembering, using subjects ranging from folk songs to 'crib talk'. Introductory chapters weave these themes together, developing an underlying sense of the project of the volume as a whole. This is the second volume in the Emory Symposia on Cognition. The Emory Cognition Project, directed by Ulric Neisser, emphasizes an ecological approach to problems in theoretical, experimental, and applied cognitive psychology
The School achievement of minority children : new perspectives by Ulric Neisser( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the chapters in this book grew out of the Conference on the Academic Performance of Minority Children held at Cornell University in 1982. Six hypotheses about minority school achievement are presented. After a general introduction by Ulric Neisser, John Ogbu describes the effects of caste and argues that black school children are preparing themselves for the roles they expect to play later on. A. Wade Boykin discusses black culture and argues that schools are structured to maintain the hegemony of the white middle class. Ron Edmonds documents the principal differences between effective and ineffective schools. Brown, Palincsar, and Purcell examine the differential treatment effect in reading instruction and describe new participatory teaching techniques that may reduce achievement gaps between successful and unsuccessful students. Reginald Gougis argues that black students suffer stress from racial prejudice that has negative effects on learning. In the final two chapters, Richard Darlington presents findings on the effectiveness of Head Start programs and Herbert Ginsburg reviews cross-cultural and subcultural research, concluding that basic abilities for school subjects are equally present in every cultural group.

The remembering self : construction and accuracy in the self-narrative( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings a surprisingly wide range of intellectual disciplines to bear on the self-narrative and the self. The same ecological/cognitive approach that successfully organized Ulric Neisser's earlier volume on The Perceived Self now relates ideas from the experimental, developmental, and clinical study of memory to insights from post-modernism and literature. Although autobiographical remembering is an essential way of giving meaning to our lives, the memories we construct are never fully consistent and often simply wrong. In the first chapter, Neisser considers the so-called 'false memory syndrome' in this context; other contributors discuss the effects of amnesia, the development of remembering in childhood, the social construction of memory and its alleged self-servingness, and the contrast between literary and psychological models of the self. Jerome Bruner, Peggy Miller, Alan Baddeley, Kenneth Gergen and Daniel Albright are among the contributors to this unusual synthesis

Affect and accuracy in recall : studies of "flashbulb" memories by Eugene Winograd( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at flashbulb memories - recollections of unexpected and emotional events - and examines how they compare with other recollections. Reviewing evidence since Brown and Kulick's 1977 paper, this work asks whether emotion and arousal strengthen memory and, if so, by what physiological mechanisms
The Perceived self : ecological and interpersonal sources of self-knowledge by Ulric Neisser( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings different ideas to bear on the classical problem of the self. Self-perception, both ecological and social, is the earliest and most fundamental form of self-knowledge. In his introduction, Ulric Neisser describes the 'ecological self' as based on direct and realistic perception of one's situation in the environment; the 'interpersonal self' as established by social interaction with other people. He argues that both of these 'selves' appear in early infancy, long before anything like a self-concept or a self-narrative is possible. In subsequent chapters, fifteen contributors - psychologists, philosophers and others - elaborate on these notions and introduce related ideas of their own. Their topics range from the perceptual and social development of infants to autism and blindness; from mechanisms of motor control to dance and non-verbal communication. The combined contributions of these leading individuals creates an unusual synthesis of perceptual, social and developmental theory
The conceptual self in context : culture, experience, self-understanding by Ulric Neisser( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is the self-concept, and how does it develop? Do people in different cultures have sharply different concepts of self? Can we believe what our informants tell us on this point? What is known about the self-concepts of depressives and schizophrenics? How does meditation affect the sense of self? Is there an inner "self of selves," as William James once suggested? These are among the most hotly debated questions in the social sciences today." "In this book a prestigious group of psychologists, linguist, anthropologists, and philosophers addresses these questions and presents some surprising answers. This is the third volume organized around Ulric Neisser's cognitive theory of self-knowledge; it goes beyond The Perceived Self and The Remembering Self to deal with some of the oldest - as well as some of the newest - psychological and philosophical questions surrounding the self."--Jacket

Understanding dropouts : statistics, strategies, and high-stakes testing by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines research on the problem of student dropouts and standardized and high stakes testing. Information comes from papers presented at a 2000 workshop in which experts offered their diverse perspectives and technical expertise. Section 1 describes the background and context of the problem, noting changing expectations for students, dropout characteristics (family and home characteristics and school-related characteristics), and why students drop out (dropping out as a process and interventions). Section 2 discusses what completion means and why it is important, focusing on the ged and the economic consequences of dropping out. Section 3 presents complexities in counting dropouts (counting methods, data sources, and complications). Section 4 examines the effects of high stakes testing and academic standards, focusing on the purposes of testing, the high school exit examination, and retention in grade. Recommendations for schools, districts, states, researchers, and funders include prioritizing the collection of key data disaggregated to allow monitoring of such populations as different minority groups, English language learners, and students with disabilities; disaggregating data on school completers by type of certificate awarded; and collecting detailed data on students who complete twelfth grade but fail exit exams and so do not graduate. (Contains 36 references.) (Sm)
