A Chat With Professor Fred Helmstetter on How The Brain Works

Jon Strelecki

One of the most amazing functions of our brain may be the ability to form a memory and then recall it later.

It happens constantly and yet that process of making memories is something scientists are still trying to understand.

At UW-Milwaukee, we are fortunate to have one of the world's leading researchers studying how the brain works. UWM Today's Tom Luljak talks with Fred Helmstetter, a Distinguished Professor Psychology. In the last decade, he has been awarded millions of dollars to conduct his research into how the brain functions.

This interview originally aired November 13, 2014.
