by Barbara K. Lipska with Elaine McArdle - Memoir, Nonfiction

In January 2015, Barbara Lipska --- a leading expert on the neuroscience of mental illness --- was diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to her brain. Within months, she descended into madness, exhibiting dementia- and schizophrenia-like symptoms that terrified her family and co-workers. But miraculously, just as her doctors figured out what was happening, the immunotherapy they had prescribed began to work. Just eight weeks after her nightmare began, Lipska returned to normal. With one difference: she remembered her brush with madness with exquisite clarity. In THE NEUROSCIENTIST WHO LOST HER MIND, Lipska describes her extraordinary ordeal and its lessons about the mind and brain.
