His research concerned discovery of the structure of antibody molecules. In interviews, he has said that the way the components of the immune system evolve over the life of the individual is analogous to the way the components of the brain evolve in a lifetime. There is a continuity in this way between his work on the immune system, for which he won the Nobel Prize, and his later work in neuroscience and in philosophy of mind. In 1992 he became a professor of neurobiology at The Scripps Research Institute; founded and directed the Neurosciences Institute; died in La Jolla, San Diego, California)
