In Pieces of Light, he eloquently illuminates this theory through a series of personal stories-a visit to his college campus to see if his memories hold; an interview with his ninety-three-year-old grandmother; interviews with those whose memories are affected by brain damage and trauma-each illustrating memory's complex synergy of cognitive and neurological functions.
Fernyhough guides readers through the fascinating new science of autobiographical memory, covering topics including navigation, imagination, and the power of sense associations to cue remembering. Exquisitely written and meticulously researched, Pieces of Lightbrings together science and literature, the ordinary and the extraordinary, to help us better understand our powers of recall and our relationship with the past.
