Kandel authored In Search of Memory: In his career he experienced the explosion of science that came form DNA sequencing and remained on the forefront of neurobiology by applying these advances in the laboratory to find key genetic mechanisms at play in memory systems.

From epithets of Anti-Semitism to meeting his wife and the beautiful shining brain stuff of legend is found within. I’ve learned that mental illnesses are caused by both genetics and environmental factors.

Kandel has created a narrative that fuses his own scientific development and interests with the broader historical and landmark developments in neuroscience. One of the things I was looking for was the fact that he had initially no idea what he wanted to work on but eventually did come up with a question that he found passionate enough to explore.

As the Nazi movement spread into Austria and Jews were first marginalized and then persecuted, Kandel laments the loss of the intellectual center of Europe at that time and dutifully highlights the role Jews had in building Vienna’s intellectual elite. It seems premature, though, to get excited about reducing higher cognitive abilities to the neural level, and Kandel does acknowledge some major scientific and philosophical problems with reductionism, but mostly he remains optimistic.

Nobel Prize winner Eric R. Some of the interesting threads Kandel weaves throughout this memoir include his childhood in Nazi Austria and his later, surprisingly recent, efforts to help Austrians acknowledge past atrocities; the brief histories of neuroscience he gives each time he begins describing a new topic of research he pursued; his unapologetic involvement with the biotechnology industry; and the many brief but vivid and gracious portraits he offers of his colleagues.
