In Episode 33 Futures in Biotech host Marc Pelletier, PhD interviews pioneering researcher Dr. Brenda Milner from the Montreal Neurological Institute. Dr. Milner is best known for her work with HM, the patient that she worked with for many decades. Her work helped neuroscientists appreciate the role of the hippocampus in memory and the fact that there are multiple types of memory, some of which do not require the hippocampus.
One of the things that makes this interview special is that Dr. Milner gives us the inside story on some of the pioneering work that we now take for granted. She emphasizes how the work fit into the context of its time, giving an unique glimpse into the history of how science really unfolds.
