the real potential of that response to affect human health. Guy Gugliotta, a freelance science writer, said Silberman's piece was "superbly written and superbly researched." Mary Knudson, a freelance writer and journalism teacher at The Johns Hopkins University, called Silberman's piece "a fascinating account," told through an examination of medical history, drug trial records, and extensive interviews with scientists. "I learned that the humble phrase 'the placebo effect,' often used glibly to dismiss the benefits of quack therapies, describes a complex web of relationshipsbetween doctor and patient, mind and body, and hope and afflictionthat has a very concrete impact on our state of being," Silberman said. "The pure joy of science reporting is having the perspective of a story open out like that. You start out by looking hard at some small phenomenon, and end up getting a glimpse of the higher orders at work in our everyday lives."

25 August 2009

The winning segment asked how a famous psychology subject named H.M. could retain memories of his childhood but not recall short-term memories such as what he had for lunch. It told how researchers are starting to learn what memories may be made of in the complex chemistry of the brain. Through animal experiments, neurobiologists are beginning to pinpoint specific molecules in the brain that are associated with the formation of memories. They also have found molecules that can erase memories forever. Peggy Girshman, executive editor for online at Kaiser Health News, said the broadcast was "an excellent presentation of a compelling story combined with an impressively clear description of the neuroscience." Holt said her reporting "allowed me to profile the scientists sorting out the c
