內容簡介

「芭芭拉‧利普斯卡的故事,讓關於人類脆弱又堅強的大腦的謎題浮上檯面」─莉莎‧潔諾娃,《我想念我自己》作者

 

二零一五年的某個春日早晨,利普斯卡照慣例出門跑步,準備要回家時,卻發現自己記不得回家的路,接著開始出現失憶、人格分裂的症狀,檢查後發現,體內的黑色素瘤擴散到大腦,導致行為失常。

 

諷刺的是,她本身就是腦神經科學專家。研究大腦的人,反而被大腦擺了一道。

 

大腦無法正常運作、精神不正常了,該怎麼辦?

 

利普斯卡當時體內共有二十個腫瘤,讓她從一個好妻子、好媽媽,變成情緒失常、會對著家人大吼小叫的病患,這讓她真正體驗到「瘋子」的思考方式和行為。

 

確診後她積極治療,試了很多方法,手術、放射治療、免疫療法等她都試過了,之後慢慢恢復後寫下這本記錄患病過程的回憶錄,同時以醫生和患者的身份,來講「發瘋」了究竟是怎麼怎麼樣的狀況。


'Oliver Sacks-meets-When Breath Becomes Air ... Barbara Lipska's remarkable story illuminates the many mysteries of our fragile yet resilient brains.' LISA GENOVA, bestselling author of Still Alice and Every Note Played

All we think, feel and dream, how we move, if we move, everything that makes us who we are, comes from the brain. We are the brain. So what happens when the brain fails? What happens when we lose our mind?

In January 2015 renowned neuroscientist Barbara Lipska's melanoma spread to her brain. It was, in effect, a death sentence. She had surgery, radiation treatments and entered an immunotherapy clinical trial. And then her brain started to play tricks on her. The expert on mental illness - who had spent a career trying to work out how the brain operates and what happens when it fails - experienced what it is like to go mad.

She began to exhibit paranoia and schizophrenia-like symptoms. She became disinhibited, completely unaware of her inappropriate behaviour. She got lost driving home from work, a journey she did every day. She couldn't remember things that had just happened to her. Small details like what she was having for breakfast became an obsession, but she ignored the fact that she was about to die. And she remembers every moment with absolute clarity.

Weaving the science of the mind and the biology of the brain into her deeply personal story, this is the dramatic account of Dr Lipska's own brilliant brain gone awry.
