This first edition successfully synthesizes research on learning and memory in a coherent and unbiased manner. Lieberman integrates cognitive and behavioral approaches to learning and memory to show how these two approaches are complementary, with associative and cognitive processes jointly shaping our behavior. Using a stimulating, integrative, and practical approach that presents rigorous concepts with exceptional clarity, Lieberman ensures that students aren't lost in a forest of facts. To help make the information come alive, he interweaves material on laboratory research and practical applications in every chapter, as well as thoroughly integrating the text with SNIFFY THE VIRTUAL RAT, Pro Version and COGLAB, to offer students unique, hands-on experience.

David A. Lieberman teaches in Scotland, although he was educated at Brown University and taught at the University of Illinois-Champaign for many years.Review:
"The organization of the material is outstanding...ideas flow naturally...the most readable learning text I have ever encountered... I haven't seen this coherent a presentation of learning issues and data since the days of Hilgard and Bower."
"The solid integration of cognitive and behavioral ideas without presenting them as if they are in constant conflict is one of the best features... The writing style is very readable and the examples and illustrations are excellent for making the necessary points. Finally, the coverage of cornerstone research is excellent, the text certainly does not lack breadth...the text flows beautifully."
"Covers some complex topics clearly and concisel...balances the seriousness of the material with light-hearted examples and headings...This text provides a very nice synthesis of traditional learning approaches and more contemporary cognitive approaches to learning. It is rare to find an author who presents these two approaches in an unbiased way and, not stopping there, helps the reader to integrate the two...into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The text is rigorous, but is written in a way that will challenge a student, rather than intimidate them."
