Committed to memory : how we remember and why we forget by Rebecca Rupp( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in Chinese and English and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, scientist Rebecca Rupp explains how and why memory works the way it does. What are the chemical processes that occur in the brain when we remember - and how do they account for the "absentminded" or "steel trap" qualities in an individual? Rupp also tackles topics that have been the subject of intense public debate. She examines the concepts of repressed and fantasized memories, such as ones of alien abduction: are they the result of horrifying experiences that have been shunted off into the depths of the unconscious? Or are they fantastic constructs of the human mind? Memory decays with awful rapidity, and a vital aspect of the study of memory is its loss. Why does memory change as we grow older? How can we improve our ability to remember, and how can we keep forgetfulness at bay? Committed to Memory features useful memory-improving techniques and tricks to remember essential information

How do hurricanes get names like "Harvey" and "Ophelia"? Is acid rain really as harsh as battery acid, or is it more like lemon juice? What kinds of clouds are killers? Which place in the United States receives hardly any sunshine at all? If lightning never strikes the same place twice, how come the Empire State Building in New York City is hit 23 times every year? Who doesn't want to know the difference between the trade winds, the westerlies, and the doldrums? Or that snow comes in pink, green, and red as well as white? Or that the Hindenberg blew up after lightning ignited the flammable paint on the zeppelin's outer cover?
