New York neuroscientist Eric Kandel was forced to leave Vienna when he was a young child because he was Jewish. His book "The Age of Insight: The Quest to Understand the Unconscious in Art, Mind, and Brain, from Vienna 1900 to the Present" is as much an exploration of art and neuroscience as it is a testament to his reconciliation with his city of origin.
