The Lost Self: Pathologies of the Brain and Identity

Todd E. Feinberg and Julian Paul Keenan

Abstract

This book offers an in-depth exploration into one of the most mysterious and controversial topics in neuroscience, neurology, psychiatry, and psychology — namely, the search for the biological basis of the self. It is a guide to understanding how the brain creates who we are, and what happens when things go wrong.

Keywords: neuroscience, biological basis, neurology, psychiatry, psychology
