- "In Memory David Samuel draws on a lifetime of scientific research in this wide-ranging survey of memory. He discusses how memory has been investigated in the past and what modern studies of brain structure and function can tell us about it; long-term, short-term and working memory; limits to memory; normal loss of memory, and the effects of alcohol, drugs and anxiety; Alzheimer's disease; deliberate and unintentional fraud in 'tricks of memory'; how to improve your memory, and why diplomats, actors and doormen have such good memories; and the likely future of memory research."--BOOK JACKET.
