Eric R. Kandel with Claudia Dreifus: The Disordered Mind


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. Kandel and renowned New York Times science writer Claudia Dreifus had an eye-opening conversation on the fascinating science of thought, feeling and memory.
