Interview with the 2000 Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine, Eric R. Kandel, Paul Greengard and Arvid Carlsson, by science writer Peter Sylwan, 12 December 2000.
The Laureates discuss whether we ever will be able to understand the mechanisms of mind; talk about their work and discoveries (6.31); making a paradigm shift in the way of looking at the brain (12:25); going against a dominant field (16:15); and their view of the future (19:04).
Their work and discoveries range from cancer therapy and laser physics to developing proteins that can solve humankind’s chemical problems. The work of the 2018 Nobel Laureates also included combating war crimes, as well as integrating innovation and climate with economic growth. Find out more.
