Into the Silent Land: Travels in Neuropsychology, by Paul Broks
By fictionalizing neurological conditions, neuronovels also offer a mirror image of the kind of clinical narrative so brilliantly practiced by Oliver Sacks (1985, 1995) or Paul Broks (2003).
About the book
Into the Silent Land is a collection of case studies and short tutorials on neuropsychology, which is the science of analyzing the relationship between personality, performance, and the anatomical and physiological structure of the brain. Broks fuses classic cases of neuropsychology with the his own case studies, philosophical debate, and thought provoking riffs and meditations on the nature of neurological impairments and dysfunctions. - Goodreads
