As Adrian Owen says, “It’s a book about what it means to be human and about the relationship between brain, that three pound lump of grey and white matter that we have in our heads, and mind, the experiences that we have every day, the things that truly make us who we are and what we are as human beings.”
Adrian Owen is the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience and Imaging at Western University, in London, Ontario, and chief scientific officer at Cambridge Brain Sciences. His book, Into the Gray Zone, A Neuroscientist Explores the Border Between Life and Death, is published by Scribner, 2017.
Intothegrayzone.com has more about the book, plus videos featuring some of the key patients, and documentaries about the discoveries.
