The Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, 2nd Edition

This second edition provides a synthesis of the interdisciplinary field of how the brain learns and remembers, with new and reorganised content to incorporate the latest findings and concepts. Each chapter makes the key concepts transparent and accessible and is extensively illustrated with photographs and figures.


‘Congratulations on a great book, and one that was sorely needed. It’s just what I wanted, and my students also love it. They range from cognitive psychology to molecular biology and biophysics, and the text is suitable for all. I think you’ve written a classic!’ – Thomas Brown, Yale University, USA ‘Rudy has served up a winner with his new book, The Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. He has hit the sweet spot for those of us looking for a text with appropriate depth in both the conceptual issues related to behavioral change and the neurobiological principles of synaptic plasticity. This book is accessible for newcomers to neuroscience, yet maintains the sophistication that is necessary to challenge more advanced neuroscience students. My students, from various academic backgrounds, love it.’ – Richard Hyson, Florida State University, USA
