In 2000 the neurobiologist Eric Kandel was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his research results, which were anticipated by 20 years through the art works of Dieter W. Liedtke and documented in his book: The Consciousness of Matter (published in 1982).

Liedtke's artwork of the 80's: that genes and gene programs can be switched on and off"."
