"The book is well written and includes interesting and illustrative text inserts as well as colorful fugures with detailed explanations.
Mechanisms of Memoryis a successful integration of recent discoveries and technological advances applied to learning and memory at many different levels that will appeal to its target audience of advanced undergraduates and graduates across a number of disciplines." --AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY (November 2005, 162:11) "This is an exceptional book in more than one aspect. David Sweatt has written a monograph in which long term potentiation (LTP) is central issue. However, this book is not an endless presentation of all the numerous experiments into a context of learning and memory...the book presents a real opportunity for the advanced student, and the interested scientists, to learn more about LTP and how to put it into a perspective...The illustrations in the book are of high quality, informative and to the point. Every chapter is introduced at an abstract level, the last item I wanted to mention which makes this a special book, bringing long term reminiscences of Rothko and Pollock." - Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy (2005)
