H.M.'s brain yields new evidence
January 28, 2014
During his lifetime, Henry G. Molaison (H.M.) was the best-known and possibly most-studied patient of modern neuroscience. Now, thanks to the postmortem study of his brain, based on histological sectioning and digital 3-D construction led by Jacopo Annese, Ph.D., at the University of California, San Diego, scientists around the globe will finally have insight into the neurological basis of the case that defined modern studies of human memory.
