The Memory Experience: The Making of Memory

on BBC Radio 4 FM

New series 1/3. Dr Mark Porter explores how the brain stores and recalls the complex connections that make up short- and long-term memory. He discovers why part of the brain crucial for memory - the hippocampus - is more developed in taxi drivers, and talks to a neurologist working on a new generation of drugs for Alzheimer's disease.
