Summary
This collection of essays brings together a diverse range of scholars to investigate how the 'neural subject' of the 21st century came to be. Taking approaches both historical and theoretical, they probe the possibilities and limits of neuroscientific understandings of human experience. Topics include landmark studies in the history of neuroscience, the relationship between neural and technological 'pathologies', and analyses of contemporary concepts of plasticity and pathology in cognitive neuroscience. Central to the volume is a critical examination of the relationship between pathology and plasticity. Because pathology is often the occasion for neural reorganization and adaptation, it exists not in opposition to the brain's 'normal' operation but instead as something intimately connected to our ways of being and understanding
