book by James L. Most of us remember where we were and what we were doing on September 11, 2001. Why do most experiences leave little trace while some-even terrible ordeals that people wish they could forget-leave memories that last a lifetime? That is the mystery at the heart of this book.

Memory is central to our existence. But not all memories are created equal. As the novelist Doris Lessing observed, Its extraordinary how little we do remember. Its almost as if memory is not considered useful by nature. So why do most experiences leave little trace while some leave memories that last a lifetime? This book attempts to provide some answers. Drawing on many fascinating case studies, the author, a distinguished neuroscientist, reveals how some of the best clues to understanding how memories are created come from understanding how memories are lost. He shows how lasting memories are not stored instantly. Rather, the consolidation of long-term memory takes time, and the disruption of newly consolidating memories leaves them permanently weakened. But why is time required? Is the brain a design failure? Perhaps, but most likely not, says the author. The slow consolidation of memory has, he contends, an important adaptive consequence. It allows physiological processes activated by experiences to regulate the strength of the memory for the experiences. Experiences initiate the consolidation of memory. Emotionally arousing experiences also induce the release of stress hormones, which can then act on the brain to influence the consolidation of recent experience. Insignificant experiences therefore leave only fleeting traces and significant experiences become memorable findings that have important implications for the controversial issues of post-traumatic stress disorder and repressed memory syndrome.

This book was very helpful. It explained how the acute stress response simultaneously accomplishes many things such as increased blood glucose, increased muscle blood flow and increased memory.

The book explains how epinephrine (adrenaline) relates to emotion.

The discussion on the differences in how short term memories are formed versus long term memories was very interesting.

This book also provides a mechanism to explain the results of the Naperville High School exercise and improved math scores research study.

One hears about the hippocampus and memory all the time.

I was happy that this book also explained a lot about the amygdala and other brain regions.

I am a neuroradiologist and author of the Straight A's at Stanford and on to Harvard.: How to use Whole Brain Learning to Optimize Study Skills. (Rogers Quintet.)book which is about college level study skills and how an understanding of the neurophysiology of memory can help a person to become a better student.

very good for phd research in adult education.

The functioning of our mind to record our past and allow us to live as we do in this world has been explored scientifically for over 100 years. James L. McGaugh reviews much of the critical literature on memory and its consolidation in this book. The book should be required reading for anyone studying or interested in memory function.
In Memory and Emotion, McGaugh reviews the different brain systems/regions involved in memory and how they operate with regard to time while recording our lives. But he also writes of how emotional arousal affects the strength of our memories and explores how memories can be influenced and completely false memories can be created. McGaugh attempts to make this literature interesting to the common reader; but his attempts are still very technical and he quickly shifts to the use of multiple acronyms. The book is saved by his great enthusiasm in writing about his own field of interest, and through his attempt to relate research to more common experiences. He writes about highly technical investigations giving only the very minimum in terms of methodology, while stating the major conclusions of these studies in a well organized and coherent manner.
While I would not recommend this book to a common readership, it is an impressively condensed volume of information for those who are interested in some of the more scientific aspects of memory and its function in our daily lives.
