The human brain weighs, on average, just over two pounds, is wrinkled like a walnut and has the colour and something of the consistency of porridge. Yet somehow the interactions of the ten billion cells that comprise it produce our capacity to think, hope, believe, imagine, and also to remember - to learn and recall, perhaps years later, a face, a tune, a poem or a telephone number. Are there molecules of memory?
Can we understand the brain best as a computer? What light do diseases of memory shed on its mechanism? What is it, locked into the interactions of the brain cells and the molecules composing them, that carries the memories which make each person unique? Deciphering this, Steven Rose argues, is the key to interpreting the links between brain and mind.premier.vclean.life/computer-crime-investigation-and-the-law.php

In this book he traces the road to a new understanding of memory that he and other researchers have followed, with all its false turnings and misleading signposts. One of the aims of the book is to explore, through a description of the laboratory life of memory researchers, how scientists, in a world not free from political rivalry, ideology and self-deception, nevertheless strive to answer an important and fascinating question.

To view it, click here. This book is an attempt by Rose, a neurochemist, to give a glimpse of what scientists do on a day-to-day basis, from designing and executing experiments to publishing to raising money to traveling to conferences.
He also shares his part of the scientific pursuit, the defining and understanding of memory. He covers the history, some major developments in other disciplines and the use of other animal subjects in the pursuit , and then his own work in tracking the effects Readability 5. He covers the history, some major developments in other disciplines and the use of other animal subjects in the pursuit , and then his own work in tracking the effects on the brains of chicks after they peck a bead that has an unpleasant substance on it.
Rose is thoughtful, and much of what he covers is interesting. The problem is that he is a poor writer - something he seems to recognize to a degree - and much of what he writes is lifeless no pun intended , badly organized, or excessively complicated. A worthwhile effort, but only barely so.
