I bought this book when it was first published but for some reason got distracted while reading it the first time and put it down. Extremely informative and enlightening on all levels. I wanted a book about the physical implementation of memory in the brain.

A very readable science book for the layperson, explaining the basic neuroscience of memory. Some would claim we know more about memory circuits than any other brain function.

But, as I learned from Ernst Kris, neither trained introspection nor creative insights would lead to the systematic accretion of knowledge needed for the foundation of a science of mind. Spacial awareness is definitely an arena to explore how memory works given our spacial awareness and that of most creatures is a function of nature in initial architecture as well as environment which determines how the memory implicit in a mental map is formed.

Another part of the book was very autobiographical, which led to lots of names which, again, I’ll likely forget and educated me slightly more about some aspects of history.

The autobiographical sections can be erci bit unexciting but his interests in art and psychoanalysis contribute for an interesting tour of ideas.

Nov 24, India Clamp rated it it was amazing. The title captures the main theme of the book as far bisca the research aspect is concerned: Published February 1st by W. Kandel’s certainly one for asking the big questions, and his tales of laboratory serendipity offer an amusing look inside the life of a research scientist.

He knows that to grasp the true significance of any experimental work, the details of design and control need to clearly explained in order to reach a real understanding of the conclusions found therein and more importantly how to formulate the next questions to ask.

Obviously, Kandel is brilliant and is writing from a position of knowledge, but I just felt as though he could have made more of an effort to come across buscs an equal rather than a superior. While certainly many more pages were devoted to the Nobel winning science that shaped Kandel’s life, a substantial amount of space was spent characterizing the role of Vienna, Judaism, and family in Kandel’s life.

If you are interested in following the life of a very interesting man as well as following the course of modern neuroscience, this would be an ideal place to start.
