"The artist is a scientist." Eric Kandel sees the divide between art and science as artificial. In this episode, the 2000 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine discusses his exploration of learning and memory and how the fields of neuroscience, psychology and art are all interrelated. He also talks about his childhood experiences of anti-semitism in Vienna, and how they made him understand how important social context can be for governing people’s behaviour.
