Handbook of Binding and Memory: Perspectives from Cognitive Neuroscience

Hubert Zimmer, Axel Mecklinger, and Ulman Lindenberger


The creation and consolidation of a memory can rest on the integration of any number of possibly disparate features and contexts — colour, sound, emotion, arousal, context. How is it that these bind together to form a coherent memory? What is the role of binding in memory formation? What are the neural processes that underlie binding? Do these binding processes change with age? This book offers an overview of binding, one of the most debated hotspots of modern memory research. It contains twenty-eig ... More

Keywords: memory, colour, sound, emotion, arousal, context, binding, memory formation, neural mechanisms, memory research
