About the book:

Dr. Gordon is head of cognitive neurology at Johns Hopkins, a specialist in memory and language disorders. His book gives an account of the state of scientific knowledge on how memory works, and why it often fails. He emphasizes the regular unexceptional processes of remembering and forgetting, rather than the controversial area of memory repressed through traumatic abuse. He deals, for example, with the effects on memory of aging, and discusses gender differences in the ability to recall. Meaning and purpose emerge as the most significant factors in recall and recognition.
