This is probably the clearest outline of scientific research that I’ve ever read, but it goes well beyond that, because it is interwoven with the personal progress of a remarkable human being. Kandel in his autobiography gives not only an elegant and thoughtful account of his Nobel-prize winning research career but beautifully explains memory and all of the researchers who have pushed that frontier alongside Kandel.

I do not remember myself reading a book which emphasized Jews so much, erim seeing history from the authors perspective was really educational and interesting. He has a noble prize and co-wrote Principles of Neural Science, the standard neuroscience book that every neuroscientist has. Three stars just because I applaud people who explain science well.

This was for me one of those magical books – the kind I wish I had not yet read, so I could read it again for first time.

His insights showed the intricate complexities of how genes are integral to how changes in memory occur, how they are triggered, how they are sustained, and how they stored in a multitude of locations and animals.

This information has allowed me to realize that I can control how strongly I feel about things that happened in the past by simply not revisiting the memory.

The author constructs the book around his own history and his own motivation both for study of memory. I will likely forget all the Years ago I added this book to my little “to read” list with expectations of this book being helpful on how to improve memory. We are who we are in large part because of what we learn bbusca remember. Once he is clear of Vienna, he has the freedom to explore, examine and verify the underpinnings of what he calls “mind,” not “the mind.

I got used to it, but it maybe a little bit disturbing. To be honest, I didn’t realize that Holocaust denial or down-play was even possible in Europe in recent times, and I wish Kandel and his collaborators well on their current efforts to address that issue.

For me, that’s a ridiculous idea, I think they are really opposite, but I am curious, so if anyone knows a book that talks about that idea, I will welcome it. And also with strong bias in my topic of interest: I burned out halfway through Kandel’s career, and couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to finish the final hundred-odd pages before it was due back at the library.

I’ve lea This is one of the most eye-opening books I have ever read.
