This book offers, first and foremost, an integrative merging of neuroscientific and humanistic findings; it is based on the conviction that the future for breakthroughs in memory research lies in a convergence of neuroscience and the humanities. The goal of this book is to forge key connections between the latest findings in scientific memory research and insights from various sectors in the humanities—such as literature, philosophy, theater, art, and music—on this timely subject. Through the interchange of intradisciplinary—within neuroscience—and cross-disciplinary—between neuroscience and the humanities—approaches, this book offers a means toward tangible advances in the field of memory studies by opening up new avenues for empirical study and testing. In presenting fresh evidence, it seeks to identify commonalities not only within the field of neuroscience but between it and the humanities across disciplinary lines. The leading premise utilized in this book is that memory is multifaceted and has multiple phases prompted by inputs from different levels of functioning.

Keywords:   integrative merging, neuroscience, humanities, scientific memory research, tangible advances, empirical study, multifaceted
