Neuroimaging of Human Memory: Linking cognitive processes to neural systems

Frank Rösler, Charan Ranganath, Brigitte Röder, and Rainer Kluwe


In the past twenty years, neuroimaging has provided us with a wealth of data regarding human memory. This book asks: to what extent can neuroimaging constrain, support or falsify psychological theories of memory? To what degree is research on the biological bases of memory actually guided by psychological theory? In looking at the close interaction between neuroimaging research and psychological theories of human memory, this book presents an exploration of imaging research on human memory, along with accounts of the significance of these findings with regard to fundamental psychological quest ...
