The myth of modern science, that it proceeds carefully, rationally, incrementally, building bit by bit from rock-solid foundations to impregnable fortresses of fact, comes unraveled in contemporary neuroscience. Fortresses, entire kingdoms of neuroscience have been built on what turn out to be frail premises that get swept away entirely when the next new thing comes along.

Reflecting in the spring of 2005 on his lab's recent successes, which he regarded as a culmination of decades of work, UC Irvine neuroscientist Gary Lynch said: "This will be a moment when all the tribes of neuroscience come to the same campfire." He was wrong. There was no reaction. Nothing. Initially, he couldn't even get a short paper on a crucial visualization experiment published.

Richard Granger remembers that when he and Gary Lynch, both UC Irvine professors, planned their experiment back in the '80s, they agreed not to tell anyone about it.

The first time I spoke with the neuroscientist Gary Lynch, the conversation went something like this: Me: I'm interested in spending time in a laboratory like yours, where the principal focus is the study of memory. I'd like to explain how memory functions and fails, and why, and use the work in the lab as a means to illustrate how we know what we know. Lynch: You'd be welcome to come here. This would actually be a propitious time to be in the lab. Me: Why's that? Lynch: Because we're about to nail this mother to the door.
