This book provides a unique perspective on what it is like to be brain-damaged, seen through the eyes of doctors or neurosurgeons who have themselves suffered a brain injury or brain illness. Each of the personal accounts, written over the past 120 years, is accompanied by a commentary written by the author which critically examines the experiences of the sufferer, relating them to current issues in clinical neurology and cognitive neuroscience. The author also provides an introduction to each contribution, and in a final overview chapter he combines the lessons learned from all the articles. Accounts from over 40 individuals cover a wide range of conditions including: memory disorders, lanaguage disorders, visual disorders, Parkinson's disease, stroke, brain tumour, head injury, and epilepsy.
