About the Author

Wilma Koutstaal is a cognitive neuroscientist whose interdisciplinary research and teaching bridge thinking and memory. She received her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from Harvard University and has taught in Canada, England, and the United States. Currently she is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Minnesota.


"Koutstaal's book is an impressive achievement, displaying a mastery of very disparate areas in the social and cognitive sciences. It is a compelling exhibit of intellectual virtuosity that has few equals in contemporary cognitive science." -- PsycCRITIQUES
