Summary "In this book, Kandel recounts his remarkable career since receiving the Nobel in 2000... He takes readers through his lab's scientific advances, including research into how long-term memory is stored in the brain and age-related memory loss as well as the neuroscience of drug addiction and schizophrenia. Kandel relates how the Nobel gave him the opportunity to reach a far larger audience, which in turn allowed him to discover and pursue new directions. He describes his efforts to promote public understanding of science and to put brain science and art into conversation. Kandel also discusses his return to Austria, which he had fled as a child, and observing its coming to terms with the Nazi period."-- Provided by publisher.
