Dr. Eric Kandel gave a lecture on the molecular biology of memory and age-related memory disorders in Old Cabell Auditorium.
Kandel is a Professor at the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
His lab is investigating memory storage, including the conscious recall of information about people, places and objects, and the unconscious recall of perceptual and motor skills.
