Developed in response to a growing need to make neuroscience accessible to students and other non-specialist readers, the Cambridge Fundamentals of Neuroscience in Psychology series provides brief introductions to key areas of neuroscience research across major domains of psychology. Written by experts in cognitive, social, affective, developmental, clinical, and applied neuroscience, these books will serve as ideal primers to the challenging world of neuroscience.

The Neuroscience of Intelligence

Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory

Richard J. Haier, University of California, Irvine

Scott D. Slotnick, Boston College, Massachusetts

Why are some people smarter than others? This book clearly explains what neuroscience tells us about intelligence and the brain, emphasizing genetic and neuroimaging research. It dispels common misconceptions and shows how neuroscientific methods could dramatically enhance intelligence, with surprising implications for education and social policy.

This is the first book to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment on the cognitive neuroscience of memory. Topics include cognitive neuroscience techniques and human brain mechanisms underlying long-term memory success, long-term memory failure, working memory, implicit memory, and memory and disease.

• Demonstrates that much of the controversy surrounding intelligence has in fact been resolved by modern neuroscience research • Explains advanced concepts in a way that makes them accessible to readers without technical backgrounds • Inspires a new optimism about intelligence and its role in readers’ everyday lives
