Couverture de l’ouvrage Memory and emotion : interdisciplinary perspectives
Memory and Emotion: Interdisciplinary Perspectives is a collection of newly written chapters by leading researchers in one of the fastest-growing areas in psychology. This book includes chapters that cover cutting-edge research in memory and emotion, discussing findings, methodological techniques, and theoretical advances. Many of the current hot topics in the field are covered including the effects of stress, arousal, anxiety and depression on memory, the influence of discrete emotions on memory, dissociative amnesia and post-traumatic stress disorder, false, recovered and traumatic memories, flashbulb memories, the use of emotional memories in therapy, the influence of emotion on autobiographical memory, emotion/memory interactions across the adult lifespan, and the neural correlates of these and other phenomena. This is the first book to emphasize cognitive neuroscience, psychopathology and aging in covering contemporary advances in research on memory and emotion.
