The Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by the American Psychological Association. It was established in 1975 as an independent section of the Journal of Experimental Psychology and covers research in experimental psychology. More specifically, the journal "publishes original experimental studies on basic processes of cognition, learning, memory, imagery, concept formation, problem solving, decision making, thinking, reading, and language processing".[1] The current editor-in-chief is Robert L. Greene.

History[edit]

Learning, Memory, and Cognition started in 1982 as volume 8, issue 1.
