Abstract

Presents an obituary of Howard B. Eichenbaum (1947-2017). Eichenbaum, a world leader in the study of memory and the brain, died in Boston, Massachusetts, on July 21, 2017, at age 69, following recent spine surgery. Eichenbaum was a hugely creative and integrative scientist whose work combined cognitive and lesion analyses with high-density neuronal recordings, providing insights into brain computations and representations that help bridge psychological and physiological mechanisms of memory. His theories and original and elegant experiments in animals have greatly advanced our knowledge of the nature and brain mechanisms of memory in animals and humans alike. (PsycINFO Database Record
