Summary:
Presents the life and work of one of the most important neuroscientists of the 20th century, Nobel Prize winner Eric Kandel. A compelling blend of autobiography and history that recounts some scientific developments in our understanding of the brain's role in recording and preserving memory. In addition to archival footage and dramatic re-creations of Kandel's childhood experiences in Nazi-occupied Vienna and his formative years as an emigrant in New York, the film features discussions with Kandel, friends and family, as well as his public lectures in Vienna and New York, which explore both his professional and personal life, especially his emotional ties to Judaism.
