In-depth cognitive processing: maximizing the 'long-term' in long-term memory; 6. Remembering, forgetting, and misremembering: why long-term memory isn't always dependable; 7. Metacognition: thinking about thinking; 8. Conceptual change: revising our understandings when revisions are called for; 9.
