The brain has billions of neurons interconnected by trillions of synapses. It is at these synapses where memories are made.
Ground-breaking research by Timothy Bliss, Graham Collingridge and Richard Morris has transformed our understanding of memory, and offered new insights into devastating effects of failing memory. This year they won the Brain Prize, the world’s most valuable award in brain research.
Join chair Claudia Hammond as we delve into the science of memory.
Claudia Hammond is an award-winning broadcaster, writer and lecturer. She regularly presents the All in the Mind and Mind Changers series on BBC Radio 4.
Timothy Bliss, Graham Collingridge and Richard Morris won the 2016 Lundbeck Foundation Brain Prize for their research on a mechanism known as ‘Long-Term Potentiation’. Their discoveries have revolutionised our understanding of how memories are formed, retained and lost.
