This film is based on a chapter in "Aping Mankind" by Professor Raymond Tallis (pages 123 - 132 "memory
in a dish"). I recommend this book as a must read for all. You can purchase it here:
The film starts with the words of Nobel Prize winning scientist Richard P Feynman. He reflects on the
single celled organism paramecium and how the scientific text books need to simplify the behaviours
and understandings of paramecium. (From the book "Surely you're koking Mr Feynman)
Professor Tallis then considers Eric Kandel's Nobel prize winning research into memory as based on the
study of Aplysia.
The film finishes with some memories of the filmmaker.
