What makes memories?


The making of a memory is a complex event within the brain and a central aspect of our ability to learn. Yet, it is something that we take for granted until it starts to fail us through aging, disease or injury. Recently I came across a wonderful series of lectures by Eric Kandel, M.D. and other neuroscientists produced by the Howard Hughes Medical Center. I wanted to share the link through NeuroBlog. I think that you will find Dr. Kandel’s presentation on memory to be valuable.
