DO ZOMBIES DREAM OF UNDEAD SHEEP?Tongue-in-cheek analysis combined with modern neuroscientific principles


A Neuroscientific View of the Zombie Brain

By Timothy Verstynen and Bradley Voytek. Are zombies conscious? Do they understand language, and can they communicate? Why are they always hungry—even after chowing down on an unfortunate human who falls within their grasp? Combining tongue-in-cheek analysis with modern neuroscientific principles, the authors identify characteristic zombie behaviors and then use neuroanatomy and brain-body relationships to explain them. Along the way, the book touches on several key psychology topics (attention, perception, emotion, memory, identity, sleep, and more) and also provides real-world examples of brain disorders that can result in zombie-like behavior. Grades 9 and up. Index. Glossary. Illustrated. Princeton University Press. 261 pages. ©2014.
