Editor-in-Chief: John H. Byrne, University of Texas Medical School, Houston, TX, USA

Coming September 2017

Learning and Memory: A Comprehensive Reference, Second Edition is an essential resource for scientists and students working in all facets of learning and memory. No other reference work covers so wide a territory and in so much depth.

The study of learning (the process of acquiring new information) and memory (retention of that information for future use) has been and continues to be the focus of intense scientific research because our memories and plans for the future consolidate who we are, while disruption of these processes dramatically interferes with our daily lives.

The second edition of Learning and Memory: A Comprehensive Reference reflects the state of the art of research in this area. Coverage of sleep and memory has been significantly expanded while neuromodulators in memory processing, neurogenesis and epigenetics are also covered in greater detail. New chapters have been included to reflect the massive increase in research into working memory and the educational relevance of memory research.

Look out for the new edition on and on coming September 2017!
