Extensive studies on this self-performance effect, which is not explained by any of the current theories of episodic memory, led the authors of this book to develop a fascinating multi-modal model of memory.The central idea of this model is that human information processing is to a certain extent decentralized, and that episodic memory performance depends not only on central information processing, but also on which systems are actually involved in the encoding and retrieval of the material itself.This book describes the practical evidence and theoretical background for this model, which not only challenges current concepts in the psychology of memory, but also has potentially very important implications about how people might best learn to remember information in our increasingly multi-modal information age.
