Memories are made of this: Kandel outlines how brains manage data, and are changed by it

This article by Steve Bradt summarizes Nobel Prize winner Dr. Eric R. Kandel’s lecture on February 8 in Cambridge as part of the Center’s Distinguished Scholars Lecture Series. His talk, “The Molecular Biology of Memory Storage and the Biological Basis of Individuality,” considered the neural systems and molecular mechanisms that contribute to learning and long-term memory. The Gazette quotes Kandel, “Without the unifying force of memory, we would be broken into as many fragments as there are moments in the day.”
