Description
Ambitious, brilliant, and contentious, Gary Lynch is the archetypal rebel scientist, engaged in a decades-long quest to uncover the physical processes of memory. Journalist Terry McDermott shadowed Lynch for two years, chronicling his successes and failures, culminating in the neuroscientist's discovery of a drug that could help repair the "memory machine" when it breaks.

"101 Theory Drive illuminates with great flair how we accomplish the simplest tasks, like remembering where we parked our car. It is a breathtaking and wonderfully informative study of modern science and the people who do it. Like no other book since Watson's Double Helix, McDermott's masterpiece captures the triumphs and trials of modern science, and what drives researchers to make discoveries."—Andrew N. Meltzoff
