Cognitive Psychology

First published in 1967, this seminal volume by Ulric Neisser was the first attempt at a comprehensive and accessible survey of Cognitive Psychology; as such, it provided the field with its first true textbook. Its chapters are organized so that they began with stimulus information that came 'inward' through the organs of sense, through its many transformations and reconstructions, and finally through to its eventual use in thought and memory. The volume inspired numerous students enter the field of cognitive psychology and some of the today's leading and most respected cognitive psychologists cite Neisser's book as the reason they embarked on their careers.

Ecological Approaches to Cognition

In the context of an Emory Symposium on Cognition honoring the enormous contributions to cognitive psychology of Ulric Neisser, this book brings together ecological approaches to various aspects of cognition and its development. Well-known former students and colleagues of Neisser articulate their views on perception, memory, and culture. There is a strong developmental component, with chapters on infant perception, infant problem solving, and the cognitive profile of Williams Syndrome, as well as two chapters that consider philosophical issues related to cognitive psychology.

Affect and Accuracy in Recall

Recollections of unexpected and emotional events (called 'flashbulb' memories) have long been the subject of theoretical speculation. Previous meetings have brought together everyone who has done research on memories of the Challenger explosion, in order to gain a better understanding of the phenomenon of flashbulb memories. How do flashbulb memories compare with other kinds of recollections? Are they unusually accurate, or especially long-lived? Do they reflect the activity of a special mechanism, as has been suggested? Although Affect and Accuracy in Recall focuses on flashbulb memories, it addresses more general issues of affect and accuracy. Do emotion and arousal strengthen memory? If so, under what conditions? By what physiological mechanisms? This 1993 volume is evidence of progress made in memory research since Brown and Kulick's 1977 paper.

The Remembering Self

This book brings a surprisingly wide range of intellectual disciplines to bear on the self-narrative and the self. The same ecological/cognitive approach that successfully organized Ulric Neisserts earlier volume on The Perceived Self, now relates ideas from the experimental, developmental, and clinical study of memory to insights from post-modernism and literature. Although auto- biographical remembering is an essential way of giving meaning to our lives, the memories we construct are never fully consistent and often simply wrong. In the first chapter, Neisser considers the so- called false memory syndrome in this context; other contributors discuss the effects of amnesia, the development of remembering in childhood, the social construction of memory and its allege self- servingness, and the contrast between literary and psychological models of the self. Jerome Bruner, Peggy Miller, Alan Baddeley, Kenneth Gergen and Daniel Albright are among the contributors to this unusual synthesis.

  • Publisher: Macmillan

Memory Observed brings together classic and contemporary essays to explore the processes of memory in real-life contexts. Covering such issues as childhood recollections, eyewitness testimony, special memory feats, and memories of famous individuals, the writings support the authors' thesis that understanding how human memory works requires greater emphasis on everyday situations and less on controlled laboratory experiments. The much-anticipated new edition has been thoroughly updated with over 40% new essays, increased coverage of early childhood memories and memories of traumatic events, and an expanded introductory section. Neisser offers a thought-provoking supplement for courses in memory, learning and cognition.

Remembering Reconsidered

Remembering Reconsidered, the new ecologically-oriented study of memory, makes contact with more traditional approaches. The problems considered by the authors include memory for randomly selected daily events, for folk ballads, for early childhood experiences, for thoughts, for events known secondhand, for knowledge acquired years before and subjected to "reminding" in the laboratory, and for a variety of stimuli presented with theoretical questions in mind. The theme unifying the contributions, which is developed by the editors in their separate introductory chapters, is concerned with the adaptive significance of memory in daily life together with careful analysis of the variables on which it depends.

Perception and Its Development

We have acquired important new knowledge about the nature and development of perception in recent years, and the insights of Eleanor Jack Gibson have had a prominent role in guiding the search for that knowledge. The purpose of this volume is to honor her continuing conrbution to our understanding of perception. First published in 1979. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
