some “neurofiction”

Written on June 29, 2007

I came across ‘Garcia’s Heart’ while browsing & thought of a few other examples of “neurofiction,” so here is the start of a list. I’m sure there are many more…

12/5/07 – Another to add to the list: Saturday by Ian McEwan (recommended in Proust Was a Neuroscientist)

    Hi Pete, Thanks for that link. One of the pages you’d linked to has moved:
    “Four Fictional Odysseys Through Life with a Disordered Brain” http://www.dana.org/news/cerebrum/detail.aspx?id=652
    Besides the four titles reviewed, there are six more listed in a sidebar.
