Basic and Applied Memory Research: Practical Applications - Vol. 2

By Douglas J. Herrmann; Cathy McEvoy et al. | Go to book overview

Preface

Cathy McEvoy University of South Florida

Three International Conferences on Practical Aspects of Memory have been held over the past 15 years, with each conference attracting larger numbers of participants than the one before it. Research on practical applications of human memory is carried out in numerous settings around the world, and many of the researchers came together at the Practical Aspects of Memory Conferences to share their ever-increasing knowledge. In Basic and Applied Memory Research: Practical Applications, Volume 2, 33 of the researchers who were invited to speak at the Third Practical Aspects of Memory Conference present their own work and, in many cases, they include summaries of related new research described during the conference. These chapters cover numerous topics in which knowledge about human memory developed in the laboratory is applied in other settings, and knowledge gained in applied settings is used to modify and enhance basic memory theory. In other words, these chapters represent several examples of the convergence of basic and applied memory research, the theme of the Third Practical Aspects of Memory Conference.

In Part One, two chapters ( Koriat & Goldsmith; Pressley) discuss issues of importance to researchers who engage in both basic and applied research. These authors discuss the commonalities between basic and applied research and the differences, and how researchers are able to navigate successfully in both worlds. This section, along with the introductory chapters of Volume 1, set the stage for the chapters that follow.
