Eric Kandel’s most recent book, The Age of Insight, explores how, in Vienna in 1900, five of the best minds from medical science to psychology and painting radically reframed our understanding of ourselves and our unconscious mental processes. Kandel won the Nobel Prize in 2000 for his research on the psychological basis of memory storage in neurons. Alan Alda is a six-time Emmy Award winner and hosted the PBS series Scientific American Frontiers for 11 years. Alda is currently developing innovative programs that enable scientists to communicate more effectively with the public.
