Why do some memories remain vivid while others fade; and who are we when we dream or when dementia has altered our personality? Sharing insights from her own clinical practice, a consultant neurologist here sets out the latest research that is revealing how many of our assumptions about consciousness are deeply flawed. She also considers questions of legal responsibility in cases of changed personalities and reveals how neurological disorders can awaken talent and creativity.
