Book Introduction

'A must read' Philippa Perry

'Rich, revelatory and, in the best way, unsettling . . . the mixture of scientific curiosity, bookish thoughtfulness and medical compassion is reminiscent of Oliver Sacks' Sunday Times


A twinge of sadness, a rush of love, a knot of loss, a whiff of regret. Memories have the power to move us, often when we least expect it, a sign of the complex neural process that continues in the background of our everyday lives. Memory is a process that shapes us: filtering the world around us, informing our behaviour and feeding our imagination.

Drawing on the poignant stories of her patients, from literature and fairy tales, Veronica O'Keane uses the latest neuroscientific research in this rich, fascinating exploration to ask, among other things, why can memories feel so real? How are our sensations and perceptions connected with them? Why is place so important in memory? Are there such things as 'true' and 'false' memories? And, above all, what happens when the process of memory is disrupted by mental illness?

This book is a testament to the courage - and suffering - of those who live with serious mental illness, showing how their experiences unlock our understanding of everything we know and feel.

Author Introduction

베로니카 오킨(지은이)

아일랜드 더블린 트리니티 칼리지 정신건강의학과 교수이자 신경학자. 우리가 살아가는 모든 순간 뇌에서 어떤 일이 일어나는지 연구하는 데 많은 시간을 쏟았다. 정상의 경험을 이해하는 가장 좋은 방법은 비정상 연구라는 생각을 바탕으로 30년 이상 이 분야에서 경험을 쌓았다. 특히 기분 장애와 출산 전후 우울증에 관한 연구 논문을 다수 발표했으며, 정신이상 장애는 과학이 해결해야 할 의학의 마지막 영역이라고 믿는다. 더블린 북쪽 바닷가 근처에 살며 바다 수영을 하면서 시간을 보낸다. 이 책은 오킨의 첫 번째 대중서다.
