101 Theory Drive: A Neuroscientist's Quest for Memory

101 Theory Drive: A Neuroscientist's Quest for Memory - Terry McDermott Interesting book. Part overview of one specific part of brain science - memory - and a variety of things associated with that (olfactory sense, theta rhythms, evolution and laboratory testing). Part biography of one scientists quest to nail down the biology of memory. We don't know enough about the brain - it's great to read about somebody trying to change that!
