About this book

This "important and marvelous book" ("The New York Times") gives Eric Kandel's account of how his personal quest to understand memory intersected with the emergence of a new science. It relates the story of how four distinct disciplines - behaviourist psychology, cognitive psychology, neuroscience and molecular biology - converged into a powerful new science of mind. Kandel's multifaceted perspective was the foundation for his path-breaking research that will continue to dominate modern thought - not only in science but in culture at large.

Eric R. Kandel is Kavli Professor and University Professor at Columbia University and senior investigator at the Howard Hughes Medial Institute. He received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2000.

Media reviews
This superb book is both the scientific memoir of a Nobel laureate and a fluent introduction to current thinking on the biology of memory. Robbie Hudson, The Sunday Times "In Search of Memory is popular science writing at its best." Financial Times "The weaving of science and memoir, in a clear and unadorned style, is especially effective..." The Economist "Beyond autobiography, the book is also an accessible introduction to contemporary neuroscience..." Charles Gross, The Times Literary Supplement"
