The myriad functions and metaphors of memory

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Glenberg provides a new and exciting view that is especially useful for capturing some functional aspects of memory. However, memory and its functions are too multifarious to be handled by any one conceptualizing. We suggest that Glenberg's proposal be restricted to its own 'focus of convenience'. In addition, its will ultimately depend on its success in generated detailed and testable theories.
