History of Neuroscience

Autobiographical Chapters

The History of Neuroscience in Autobiography is a nine-volume book series, edited by Tom Albright and Larry R. Squire, that details the lives and discoveries of eminent senior neuroscientists.

During his term as president of the Society for Neuroscience in 1993-94, Dr. Squire initiated the collection of these autobiographies from leading neuroscientists so they could share their personal narratives.  

These delightful, often humorous and touching narratives allow each scientist to discuss their lives and the forces that shaped the path to their prominent careers and discoveries.
