The book “Am I Just My Brain” is out now. Science and Belief has published a series of excerpts from the book, such as:
“I will never forget the day I saw a human brain removed from a corpse. At that moment, I was already very familiar with the human brain, having spent years imaging and studying it. Yet, this experience was different altogether.
“A group of us, dressed in green robes, wearing blue plastic shoes, were in a dissection room in a medical school. The icy formality matched the cold air of the surroundings. The pungent smell of formaldehyde, used to preserve human tissue, filled our nostrils. The body of an older woman lay on the bench before us.”
For those interested in more reading on the topic, take a look at this article by ISCAST President Alan Gijsbers and fellow Andrew Wood, or Prof Gijsber’s lecture on the subject.
