The seven sins of memory : how the mind forgets and remembers by Daniel L Schacter( Book )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daniel L. Schacter, chairman of Harvard University's Psychology Department and a leading expert on memory, has developed the first framework that describes the basic memory miscues we all encounter. Just like the seven deadly sins, the seven memory sins appear routinely in everyday life. Schacter explains how transience reflects a weakening of memory over time, how absent-mindedness occurs when failures of attention sabotage memory, and how blocking happens when we can't retrieve a name we know well. Three other sins involve distorted memories: misattribution (assigning a memory to the wrong source), suggestibility (implanting false memories), and bias (rewriting the past based on present beliefs). The seventh sin, persistence, concerns intrusive recollections that we cannot forget - even when we wish we could. Although these sins may cause difficulties, as Schacter notes, they're surprisingly vital to a keen mind."--Jacket
Searching for memory : the brain, the mind, and the past by Daniel L Schacter( Book )

41 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on his own work and that of other cognitive, clinical, and neuroscientists, Schacter gives us overwhelming evidence for the thesis that we possess more than one memory system, which explains why some brain-damaged people cannot remember past events, and others cannot acquire new knowledge or call up old. He also shows us how new breakthroughs in brain imaging are allowing us to see, for the first time, the many parts of the brain that must interact to enable us to encode or retrieve a memory. Searching for Memory contains fascinating firsthand accounts of patients with striking - and sometimes bizarre - amnesias resulting from brain injury or psychological trauma. Schacter also takes us into the hidden world of implicit memories - unconscious influences of the past that, outside our awareness, affect our judgments, preferences, and actions. And he examines the nature and accuracy of emotionally traumatic memories, using the latest advances in cognitive neuroscience to clarify vexing issues in the heated controversy over repressed memories of childhood trauma
Memory distortion : how minds, brains, and societies reconstruct the past by Daniel L Schacter( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hypnosis, confabulation, source amnesia, flashbulb memories, repression - these and numerous additional topics are explored in this timely collection of essays by eminent scholars in a range of disciplines. This is the first book on memory distortion to unite contributions from cognitive psychology, psychopathology, psychiatry, neurobiology, sociology, history, and religious studies. It brings the most relevant group of perspectives to bear on some key contemporary issues, including the value of eyewitness testimony and the accuracy of recovered memories of sexual abuse
Memory, brain, and belief by Daniel L Schacter( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Scientific Research literature on memory is enormous. Yet until now no single book has focused on the complex interrelationships of memory and belief. This book brings together eminent scholars from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, literature, and medicine to discuss such provocative issues as "false memories," in which people can develop vivid recollections of events that never happened; retrospective biases, in which memories of past experiences are influenced by one's current beliefs; and implicit memory, or the way in which nonconscious influences of past experience shape current beliefs."--Jacket
Sleep and cognition( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and Italian and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite impressive advances in understanding sleep as a biological phenomenon and in understanding the nature of mental processes in the normal waking state, our knowledge of mental life during sleep remains extremely impoverished. The common identification of cognition with consciousness leaves the impression that little or no mental activity occurs during sleep. The present volume represents the Proceedings of the Arizona Conference on Sleep and Cognition, held in Tucson January 19-22, 1989. A principal concern of the conference was the implications of recent work on implicit memory and other aspects of information-processing outside of awareness for studies of cognitive processes during sleep, and the role of the sleep laboratory as a vehicle for studying various aspects of information processing outside of awareness, in the absence of the active deployment of attention. To this end, selected investigators in the area of sleep who have an interest in cognitive processes were brought together with their counterparts in the area of cognition who have an interest in sleep. We hope that one outcome of this meeting, and publication of the Proceedings, will be a new agenda for research on sleep that will carry investigators of both camps well into the 21st century.

Forgotten ideas, neglected pioneers : Richard Semon and the story of memory by Daniel L Schacter( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Semon was a German evolutionary biologist who, during the first decade of the twentieth century, wrote two fascinating analyses of the workings of human memory that were ahead of their time. This book not only examines Semon's contribution to memory research, but also tells the story of an extraordinary life set against the background of a turbulent period in European history and major developments in science and evolutionary theory. The resulting book is an engaging blend of biographical, historical and psychological material."--Jacket

The cognitive neuropsychology of false memories by Daniel L Schacter( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People sometimes remember events that never happened. These illusory or false memories have important practical implications in various aspects of everyday life, and also have significant theoretical implications for cognitive and neuropsychological models of memory." "In recognition of this emerging domain of interest, this special issue of Cognitive Neuropsychology is devoted to the cognitive neuropsychology of false memories. Edited by Daniel L. Schacter, the special issue features experimental and theoretical contributions from leading cognitive psychologists, neuropsychologists, and neurologists that explore such issues as false recognition after frontal lobe damage, the nature of confabulation, amnesia and false memories, physiological correlates of memory illusions, memory distortions in normal and abnormal ageing, and computational models of true and false memories."--Jacket
