This was probably the first scientific study of what is now known as ‘autobiographical memory’ (see Chapter 7), and indeed one of the first studies of cognition of any kind to be carried out in a real-world setting. Hermann Ebbinghaus (1885) carried out some of the earliest scientific experiments on memory, which were mainly concerned with investigating basic laws and principles of memory.

No doubt there will be topics that some of you think should have been included in the book but aren’t. If so, perhaps you would be good enough to write in and tell us which topics you think we should have included, and we will consider putting them in the next edition.
