Memory Facts and Fallacies by Ian M.L. Hunter

Memory has long fascinated mankind and innumerable questions have been asked about it. However, it was not until some seventy years ago that memory began to be investigated by means of the patient and critical methods of biological science. The applications of these methods have revealed some strange facts and exposed a number of popular fallacies.

The book begins by showing that memory involves a number of distinct processes. Such topics are then discussed as why we forget, whether rapid learners remember better than slow learners, the growth of rumours and folk tales, the giving of legal evidence, repression, ‘dual personality’, and childhood memories. Memory images are then considered along with ‘photographic memory’, and the final chapter is devoted to the important question of how memory can be improved.
