In Search of Memory, with Jill Fischer, PsyA, APRN, BC, Michelle Seligson, M.Ed., and Soren Ekstrom, Ph.D.,
Come share and together let’s experience this “compelling blend of autobiography and science.”
The film, In Search of Memory is a portrait of the amazing life and work of the Nobel Prize winner, Eric Kandel, one of science’s greatest treasures and the most important neuroscientist of the 21st century.
We will literally travel back in time to Dr. Kandel’s native Vienna, Austria during the Nazi occupation to understand how his interest in psychoanalysis and neuroscience influenced his life. In his laboratory at Columbia University we will observe how Kandel and his colleagues demonstrate their research into how the brain records and preserves memory. Memory is the glue that binds our mental life together and provides a sense of continuity in our lives.
