Welcome to the Companion Site!

This site is intended to enhance your use of Memory, Third Edition, by Bennett L. Schwartz. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material.

The fully updated Third Edition of Bennett L. Schwartz’s practical text on memory science engages students in an exploration of how memory works in everyday life through unique applications in areas such as education, job-related memory, investigations, and courtrooms. Throughout the book, integrated coverage of cognitive psychology and neuroscience connects theory and research to the areas in the brain where memory processes occur. Four overarching themes that create a framework for the text include: the active nature of learning and remembering; memory's status as a biological process; the multiple components of memory systems; and how memory principles can improve our individual ability to learn and remember. Featuring substantive changes that bring the book completely up to date, the Third Edition offers students an array of high-interest examples for augmenting their own memory abilities and appreciation of memory science.
