Abstract: We consider, in an abstract setting, an instance of the Coleman-Gurtin model for heat conduction with memory, that is, the Volterra integro-differential equation

$\displaystyle \partial_t u(t) - \beta \Delta u(t) - \int_{0}^{t}k(s)\Delta u(t-s)ds = 0. $

We establish new results for the exponential and polynomial decay of solutions, by means of conditions on the convolution kernel which are weaker than the classical differential inequalities.
