5.0 out of 5 stars A solid synopsis and thorough intro to current views on memory biology, 10 Mar. 2009
Richard Griffiths "SoulFireMage" (Bristol UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (Hardcover)
Covering experiments, molecular biology and neuroanatomy this book gives a decent grounding in the current understanding of how we think memory works on a biological level.

You get into receptor subtypes, synaptic tagging, cofilin-f-actin/g-actin in the chapter on synaptic modification and LTP, just to give you a flavour of the detail you cover in this book.

The diagrams are clear, the text is easy to follow and it's very well structured in its presentation of the topics.

For me it was a worthwhile purchase on this particular subject. This is the nitty gritty molecules and wetware of memory.

A note, this doesn't illustrate memory "techniques" etc though the book may well come up on such searches. This is a biology book rather than a how to improve memory :).
