Neuroimaging of Human Memory

This chapter discusses how brain-imaging tools have provided new insights and modified theories on memory. In particular, it emphasizes that psychological distinctions between functionally encapsulated modules handling either working memory or long-term memory encoding and retrieval or being specialized on specific sub-processes have to be questioned on the basis of brain-imaging data.

Keywords:   brain-imaging tools, memory, working memory, long-term memory, brain-imaging data
