H.M.’s case greatly illuminated the field of Neuroscience and memory research.
What did his condition teach us about how our memory works, and where can we see the impact and the legacy of H.M. in science today?
Special Guests: Howard Eichenbaum, Professor of Cognitive Neurobiology at Boston University. He is also the director of the Center for Memory and The Brain, the Center for Neuroscience, and of the Cognitive Neurobiology Laboratory. His primary focus is on the hippocampus, the portion of HM’s brain that was removed in his surgery.
