Public Lecture with Dr. Eric Kandel
November 19, 2017
2:00 PM

Dr. Eric Kandel will discuss two perspectives on our understanding of the neural systems and molecular mechanisms that contribute to learning and long-term memory.

– How different memory systems were identified in the human brain and how they were shown to be involved in two major forms of neural memory storage: 1) simple memory for perceptual and motor skills and 2) complex memory for facts and events.

– The studies that demonstrated that long-term memory is reflected in the growth of new synaptic connections.

This will lead into a discussion on how our insights into memory storage are allowing us to understand the two major forms of age related memory loss.

And join us on Monday for the full-day symposium “Neural Plasticity: Synapses to circuits” in partnership with York University

    Dr. Eric Kandel

    University Professor at Columbia; Kavli Professor and Director, Kavli Institute for Brain Science; Co-Director, Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute; and an Investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

    Eric R. Kandel, M.D., is University Professor at Columbia; Kavli Professor and Director, Kavli Institute for Brain Science; Co-Director, Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute; and an Investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. A graduate of Harvard College and N.Y.U. School of Medicine, Kandel trained in Neurobiology at the NIH and in Psychiatry at Harvard. He joined the faculty of the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University in 1974. At Columbia Kandel organized the neuroscience curriculum. He is an editor of Principles of Neural Science, the standard textbook in the field now in its 5th edition. His previous book on art, The Age of Insight: The Quest to Understand the Unconscious in Art, Mind, and Brain From Vienna 1900 to the Present won the Kreisky Award in Literature, Austria's highest literary award. Kandel’s new book entitled, Reductionism in Art and Brain Science: Bridging the Two Cultures, published by Columbia University Press has just been released. Kandel’s research has been concerned with the molecular mechanisms of memory storage in Aplysia and mice. Recently, he has studied age-related memory disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine addiction. Kandel has received twenty-three honorary degrees. He has been recognized with the Albert Lasker Award, the Heineken Award of the Netherlands, the Gairdner Award of Canada, the Harvey Prize and the Wolf Prize of Israel, the National Medal of Science USA and the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2000.
