Human Associative Memory.
Anderson, John R.; Bower, Gordon H.
This book presents a description of a new theory of memory which departs from existing concepts. It integrates and explains in detail the recent research findings in sentence memory, language comprehension, search on long term memory, verbal learning, and forgetting and imagery. It also reports new experiments which clarify these issues. A major point of integration is the synthesis between verbal learning analysis of human memory and the psycholinguistic analysis of sentences. Among the chapter headings are: (1) "Associationism: A Historical Review," (2) "Computer Simulation Models of Memory," (3) "Current Developments in Linguistics," (4) "The Structure of Knowledge," (5) "The Encoding Problem," (6) "The Recognition Process," (7) "Properties of the Memory Structure," (8) "Fact Retrieval," (9) "Question Answering," (10) "Verbal Learning," and (11) "Interference and Forgetting."
