Memory & Movies by John Seamon

I discovered this book when I did the Coursera Course ‘Memory & Movies’ – What can films teach us about memory?


I thoroughly recommend the course and the book. It uses films to illustrate the four types of memory, different aspects of the memory process, how we can improve our memory through various techniques and also takes a look at when memory goes wrong e.g. amnesia,


Memories are attributions that we make about our mental experiences based on their subjective qualities, our prior knowledge and beliefs, our motives and goals, and the social context” Marcia Johnson
