My Odyssey with Sir John Eccles

Friedrich Beck

Abstract

It all started with a summer school in the beautiful alpine mountain area of Northern Italy, organized by a German foundation for the promotion of outstanding students. For the 1991 campaign Sir John Eccles was invited to lecture on brain physiology while in my group we discussed new developments in theoretical nuclear physics. It was the first time I have met Sir John. At this time he was already in his 89th year, but still walked with his wife Helena through the Tyrolean dolomites.
