It is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body. With billions of nerves and trillions of connections, the human brain is a marvel.

On this edition of UWM Today, we’re going to talk about the science of our brains and more specifically, the amazing circuitry that gives us our memory. In the studio with us are two UWM neuroscientists who have each received major grants from the National Institute of Health to study brain function. Fred Helmstetter is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Karyn Frick is also a professor of psychology in UWM’s College of Letters & Science.
