Erik Kandel won the Nobel Prize for his path-breaking work on the cerebral mechanisms that produce memory. In this popular science book, he offers an illuminating description of his own research spanning several decades in relation to the general advancement of the topic. He knows how to use simple pictures to convey the key points and the reader learns painlessly quite a lot about his own brain and how his own mind functions. Moreover, Kandel blends his own memories with his narrative, from his beloved Vienna that his family had to leave when the Nazis took over, to New York, where he spent the rest of his life.

Ce livre était un cadeau pour célébrer les 48 ans de mon fils qui vient de le recevoir avec beaucoup de plaisir et de surprise !
Je ne l'ai évidemment pas vu, mais tout doit être bien comme d'habitude.
