요약
"Collectively, anxiety disorders are our most prevalent psychiatric problem, affecting about forty million adults in the United States. In Anxious, Joseph LeDoux, whose NYU lab has been at the forefront of research efforts to understand and treat fear and anxiety, explains the range of these disorders, their origins, and discoveries that can restore sufferers to normalcy. LeDoux's groundbreaking premise is that we've been thinking about fear and anxiety in the wrong way. These are not innate states waiting to be unleashed from the brain, but experiences that we assemble cognitively. Treatment of these problems must address both their conscious manifestations and underlying non-conscious processes. While knowledge about how the brain works will help us discover new drugs, LeDoux argues that the greatest breakthroughs may come from using brain research to help reshape psychotherapy. A major work on our most pressing mental health issue, Anxious explains the science behind fear and anxiety disorders--

Author Introduction

조지프 르두(지은이)

세계적인 신경과학자. 뉴욕대학교 신경과학·심리학 교수. 설치류를 이용한 감정 관련 행동 연구, 특히 파블로프 조건화를 이용해 편도체가 뇌의 ‘두려움 중추’라는 것을 밝힌 연구로 유명하다. 1949년생으로, 루이지애나주립대학원 때 심리학에 뒤늦게 관심을 가지고 공부를 시작했다. 인지신경과학계의 거두인 마이클 가자니가의 지도 아래 ‘분열뇌’ 환자 연구로 뉴욕주립대학교에서 박사학위를 받았다. 코널 의대 신경생물학 연구실에서 박사후연구원으로 일하며 신경과학 기술을 익혔고, 본격적으로 감정과 기억의 뇌 기제를 연구하기 시작했다. 1989년 부임한 이래 지금까지 뉴욕대 교수로 재직하고 있다. 2005년 뉴욕대를 대표하는 석학이자 학문의 경계를 넘어선 최고의 학자에게 부여하는 명예로운 칭호인 ‘유니버시티 프로페서’에 임명되었으며, 뉴욕대학교 감정뇌연구소 소장, 막스플랑크언어·음악·감정연구소 부소장도 맡고 있다. 한편, 2004년부터 뉴욕대 교수·박사·대학원생들과 함께 마음과 뇌를 노래하는 포크록 밴드 ‘아미그달로이드’(편도체)를 결성해 리드싱어이자 작사·작곡가로도 활동하고 있다. 저서로는 스승 마이클 가자니가와 함께 쓴 《통합된 마음》 외에 《느끼는 뇌》 《시냅스와 자아》 《불안》이 있으며, 엮은 책으로 《마음과 뇌: 인지신경과학의 대화》 《자아: 영혼에서 뇌까지》 등이 있다.
