This well-established international series examines major areas of basic and clinical research within neuroscience, as well as emerging and promising subfields. This volume on the neurosciences, neurology, and literature vividly shows how science and the humanities can come together --- and have come together in the past. Its sections provide a new, broad look at these interactions, which have received surprisingly little attention in the past. Experts in the field cover literature as a window to neurological and scientific zeitgeists, theories of brain and mind in literature, famous authors and their suspected neurological disorders, and how neurological disorders and treatments have been described in literature. In addition, a myriad of other topics are covered, including some on famous authors whose important connections to the neurosciences have been overlooked (e.g., Roget, of Thesaurus fame), famous neuroscientists who should also be associated with literature, and some overlooked scientific and medical men who helped others produce great literary works (e,g., Bram Stoker's Dracula). There has not been a volume with this coverage in the past, and the connections it provides should prove fascinating to individuals in science, medicine, history, literature, and various other disciplines. This book looks at literature, medicine, and the brain sciences both historically and in the light of the newest scholarly discoveries and insights

Caden hält sich für einen normalen Jungen. Doch sein Verstand ist ein krankhafter Lügner, der sich auf fantastische Reisen begibt. Manchmal befindet Caden sich auf dem Weg zum tiefsten Punkt der Erde im Marianengraben, auf einem Schiff, auf dem die Zeit seitlich läuft wie eine Krabbe, verwittert von Millionen Fahrten, die bis in die finstere Vergangenheit zurückreichen. Und in der Realität lässt Cadens Verstand harmlose Dinge wie einen Gartenschlauch zur tödlichen Gefahr werden. Als die Grenze zwischen realer und fantastischer Welt verschwimmt, begreift Caden: In den Tagen der Bibel hätte er vermutlich als Prophet gegolten, doch heute lautet die Diagnose: Schizophrenie.

Eine junge Frau in Chicago, die vor Glück nur so strahlt. Sie lebt völlig ohne Zorn, alle Freunde und Bekannte kreisen nur um sie. Doch sie stammt aus Algerien, einem Hexenkessel aus Gewalt und Gegengewalt, dem sie nur knapp entging. Kennt sie das Geheimnis des Glücks, besitzt sie gar das »Glücks-Gen«? Laboratorien und Fernsehshows reißen sich um sie, ein Karussell, das sich immer schneller dreht, bis sie alles zu verlieren droht. Meisterhaft ist Richard Powers ein großer Roman gelungen über die Frage, was unser Leben bestimmt – die Sterne, die Eltern, oder liegt alles in den Genen? Mit einer zärtlichen Liebesgeschichte sucht er die Antwort: Greift die Zukunft nach uns oder wir nach der Zukunft?

Wie beeinflusst sie Körper und Geist? Heute schon gegoogelt? Im Durchschnitt sind die Deutschen etwa zweieinhalb Stunden täglich online. Neuesten Studien zufolge, so zeigt Bestsellerautor und IT-Experte Nicholas Carr, bewirkt bereits eine Onlinestunde am Tag erstaunliche neurologische Prägungen in unserem Gehirn. Wer das Internet nach Informationen, sozialen Kontakten oder Unterhaltung durchforstet, verwendet, anders als beim Buch- oder Zeitunglesen, einen Großteil seiner geistigen Energie auf die Beherrschung des Mediums selbst. Und macht sich um die Inhalte, buchstäblich, keinen Kopf. Die Folge: Im Internetzeitalter lesen wir oberflächlicher, lernen wir schlechter, erinnern wir uns schwächer denn je. Von den Anpassungsleistungen unseres Gehirns profitieren nicht wir, sondern die Konzerne, die mit Klickzahlen Kasse machen. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Carr, zwanzig Jahre nach Entstehung des World Wide Web, seine medienkritische Bilanz mit einer erhellenden Zeitreise durch Philosophie-, Technologie- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte – von Sokrates’ Skepsis gegenüber der Schrift, dem Menschen als Uhrwerk und Nietzsches Schreibmaschine bis zum User als Gegenstand aktueller Debatten und Studien. Und er vermittelt – jenseits von vagem Kulturpessimismus – anhand greifbarer Untersuchungen und Experimente, wie das Internet unser Denken verändert.
