Models of Working Memory

£39.99

Product description

Working memory plays an essential role in the performance of virtually all complex cognitive activities. Chapters compares existing models of working memory by addressing the same set of important and controversial theoretical questions. The volume provides a synthesis of seemingly disparate models and outlines future research directions for the field. Working memory is currently a 'hot' topic in cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Because of their radically different scopes and emphases, however, comparing different models and theories and understanding how they relate to one another has been a difficult task. This volume offers a much-needed forum for systematically comparing and contrasting existing models of working memory. It does so by asking each contributor to address the same comprehensive set of important theoretical questions on working memory. The answers to these questions provided in the volume elucidate the emerging general consensus on the nature of working memory among different theorists and crystallize incompatible theoretical claims that must be resolved in future research. As such, this volume serves not only as a milestone that documents the state-of-the-art in the field but also as a theoretical guidebook that will likely promote new lines of research and more precise and comprehensive models of working memory.

Condition: The bottom corner of the book has been affected by damp, which has had the effect of crumpling the pages throughout. Name of previous owner on fly leaf. Otherwise the binding is sound and tight and the textblock free of annotations or other markings.
