Involuntary Memory (1405136375) cover image
Involuntary memory was identified by the pioneering memory researcher Hermann Ebbinghaus more than a century ago, but it was not until very recently that cognitive psychologists began to study this memory phenomenon. This book is the first to examine key topics and cutting-edge research in involuntary memory.

  • Discusses topics such as involuntary memories in everyday life, across the life-span, and in the laboratory; the special ways in which involuntary memories sometimes manifest themselves and a number of theoretical treatments of the topic.
  • Presents innovative research that not only represents the starting point of the study of involuntary memory, but also places it in such broader topics as autobiographical memory, consciousness and memory, aging and memory, implicit and explicit memory, depression, and psychosis.

(Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2009)

"Mace does offer the public a comprehensive text that provides one of the most integrative works on involuntary memory. This book puts forth the most groundbreaking research done so far on involuntary memory and would benefit students and professionals eager to dive into one of the most complex grooves of the human psyche." (PsycCRITIQUES)

"This first-of-its-kind book point[s] out that much of the research ... has been published in the last ten years. Therein lies much of the book's appeal." (North American Journal of Psychology)
