Nobel Laureate Dr. Eric Kandel will give a lecture, “Toward a Molecular Biology of Memory and Age-Related Memory Disorders,” in Old Cabell Auditorium on Jan. 28 at 3:30 p.m.

Kandel is University Professor at the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. His lab is investigating memory storage, both explicit — the conscious recall of information about people, places and objects, and implicit — the unconscious recall of perceptual and motor skills.

A member of the National Academy of Sciences, Kandel won the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. His many honors include the Lasker Award, the Gairdner Award, the Harvey Prize, the National Medal of Science and the Wolf Prize.

The lecture is part of the Nobel Lecture Series, sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies. U.Va.’s Institute on Aging, which offers several events on age-related issues throughout the year, also is sponsoring this lecture.
