Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1333. Reviews the book, Aspects of Memory, Vol. 1: The Practical Aspects (2nd ed.) edited by Michael Gruneberg and Peter Morris (1992). The first of this volume's nine chapters, written by the editors, addresses the methodological problems and issues involved in the search for an ecologically valid approach to memory research whose purpose is ultimately the solving of real-life practical problems. The following two chapters, on eyewitnessing and face recognition, review the contributions made by psychological memory research to the forensic problem of evaluating the validity of courtroom evidence. Clinical aspects of memory are discussed in the next two chapters, which provide an excellent summary of current research findings on the effects of brain damage and aging on memory.
