Moonwalking With Einstein: The Art And Science Of Remembering Everything Mobi Download Book
The book is interwoven with informed exposition about the psychological science of memory (including discussion about one of this reviewer's study patients). What happens when memory fails, as in amnesia after brain injury? What is the nature of acquired expertise, such as typing, ice skating or the reading of mammograms? Studies show that recently trained radiologists are more accurate at screening mammograms than those who were trained some time ago. Because the accuracy of a diagnosis becomes known only later, practitioners may forget the case details and so cannot learn effectively from their mistakes. As a result, their skills can backslide.
