Show Notes for Episode 3: In Search of Memory, by Eric R Kandel
In this episode, I talk about Dr. Kandel’s autobiography, In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of Mind. The focus of the podcast is what has been learned about how memory works. A key principle is that the molecular mechanisms of memory are the same in all animals, including people.
There is lots of good information on the web about Aplysia’s role in understanding learning and memory. Dr Kandel’s lab has its own website. If you know of a particularly good website for non-specialists, please leave a comment on this page. Also, if you have a photo of Aplysia that I could use legally, please send me email at docartemis at gmail.com.
Also, please let me know if you would like to see short daily blog posts on this site about basic neuroscience.
