Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 020 - Dr. Kandel's Insights into the Science of Mind

    Nobel Laureate Dr. Eric Kandel explains the neurobiology of memory

    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guest: Dr. Eric Kandel

    Dr. Kandel is a Professor of Physiology and Psychiatry and the founding director of the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior of the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He is also a Senior Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Member of National Academy of Sciences. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2000 for his work on the biological mechanisms for memory. In this episode, he explains how the mind learns and stores memory, and also shares some of his most recent findings.

    the FiB podcast is stunning in almost every episode, but this one really blew my mind.
    The work that Dr. Kandel is doing is amazing. The amount of knowledge we are just beginning to understand is just overwhelming. Today, we're looking at single neuron models or a small number of neurons working together, but once we have understood the inner workings and developed the correct tools, we will understand larger and larger groups of neurons working together.
    It is a blessing to live in times where science prospers and we have the opportunity to learn about it. Thank you for opening those doors to us, Marc.

    Thanks Peter -you made my day!

    Podcasting is the perfect medium for Interviewing these top scientists. And scientists also have great stories to tell - they are on journeys of discovery.

    Hi. FYI. language may influence memory. Some speakers who were taught multiple languages at an early age, remember numbers with different degree of accuracy when trying to remember them in diff. languages. Meaning, repeating them in the mind with different language yields different recall-ability.
