    DescriptionMemory binds our mental life together. We are who we are in large part because of what we learn and remember. But how does the brain create memories? Nobel Prize winner Eric R. Kandel intertwines the intellectual history of the powerful new science of the mind a combination of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and molecular biology with his own personal quest to understand memory. A deft mixture of memoir and history, modern biology and behavior, In Search of Memory brings readers from Kandel's childhood in Nazi-occupied Vienna to the forefront of one of the great scientific endeavors of the twentieth century: the search for the biological basis of memory."

    Review quote
    "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"
