Broken Memories

£6.99

Product description

Broken Memories explores some of the unusual and disabling disturbances of memory or knowledge to which people have fallen prey through brain disease or accident. These patients give important glimpses into how memory functions and how knowledge is acquired and disposed. They make us aware of how brain structures underpin remembering in different circumstances, and how different functional components in remembering may interrelate. The authors are leading international researchers, with extensive expertise in psychological and neuropsychological research. In addition to addressing questions about the way memory functions, the case studies presented here also give a picture of the person caught up in the memory failures and a glimpse of the ways in which other aspects of mental life, including personality, habit, support and attitude, can interact with the demonstrable cognitive disturbance. This copy is in very good condition. There is a name inscription on the front free endpaper and a few notes in ink on the back of the back cover. Pages clean and bright with no annotations to text. Some wear to edges and corners of the covers.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
