In search of memory: Throughout his career, he tackled brain and memory research at different levels from molecular biology to psychoanalysis, his most groundbreaking research being on Aplysia, a sea snail with very simple, yet molecularly big nervous system. Kandel’s work, for which he won meemoria Nobel prize, shows that the simplest forms of learning do have molecular and cellular correlates in simple animals.

Eric Kandel fled Vienna with his parents and brother when he was nine, just as the Nazis were moving in. Nobel Prize winner Eric R.

As his new life unfolds in the United States principally at Columbiaso does the study of the brain and the two become inextricably linked. This book tackled the topic from the very beginning which was especially helpful for a person having a minimal background in the biology side of things. It is a return to the autobiographical aspect of the book and the author describes how he revisited Vienna and some of the discourse engaged in while there.

In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of Mind by Eric R. Kandel

There are many ways to get at the science he present This is an improbable book by an improbable man. But how does the brain create memories?

This book is a great book for anyone at all interested in Neuroscience. Understanding how electrical impulses are propagated between neurons is difficult enough: It is a reasonable end to an otherwise fascinating and informative book. Kandel spent much of his life examining neurons and related biological structures to determine a measurable, experimentally verifiable, biological basis for memory and learning.

Kandel is an American neuropsychiatrist who was a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his research on the physiological basis of memory storage in neurons. Jul 27, Kayson Fakhar rated it it was amazing.
