Eric R. Kandel

Where does consciousness come from? How does the physical matter of the brain produce our sense of self?

No one understands the mysteries of the mind better than Nobel Prize-winning Columbia University neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel. And in his pathbreaking new book, The Disordered Mind: What Unusual Brains Tell Us About Ourselves, he shows how the neural disruptions behind difficult diseases like autism, depression and addiction can also shed invaluable light on the processes of the brain. Join Kandel and renowned New York Times science writer Claudia Dreifus for an eye-opening conversation on the fascinating science of thought, feeling and memory.
