The Neurology of Grief
The sorrow, heartache and suffering connected with loss can leave a person paralyzed with grief. In “Before and after Loss: A Neurologist’s Perspective on Loss, Grief, and Our Brain,” Dr. Lisa Shulman channels her personal encounters with bereavement into exploration of what takes place in the brain when we’re grieving. Shulman discusses interpreting dreams … journaling … and introspection. She raises questions and draws conclusions about the cognitive effects of loss, and how to recover.
