Synopsis

Nancy Andreasen, fuhrende Neurowissenschaftlerin, Herausgeberin des angesehenen American Journal of Psychiatry und ausgezeichnet mit der National Medal of Science, zeigt uns in ihrem neuen Buch die Zusammenhange zwischen Gehirn und Genom. Dank modernster Methoden und Entdeckungen in Neurowissenschaften und Molekularbiologie wissen Forscher mehr denn je uber die Funktionen des Gehirns. Die Autorin beschreibt auf faszinierende und verstandliche Weise, wie alles zusammenhangt - von Milliarden kleinster Neuronen im Thalamus bis hin zur moralischen Kontrollinstanz im prafrontalen Kortex. Sie erklart die Entschlusselung des Genoms, dessen 30000-40000 Gene fast alle in irgendeiner Form in unserem Gehirn aktiv sind. In fesselnden Geschichten beleuchtet sie aber auch, wie sich psychische Storungen entwickeln und welche Auswirkungen sie auf Patienten und Angehorige haben. Nancy Andreasen gelingt der Bruckenschlag zwischen hochkomplexen Inhalten und spannender Lekture.
