Brain on Fire

Brain on Fire – a month of madness by Susannah Cahalan

Brain on Fire is a story of a young writer’s rapid descent into madness, due to a mysterious and debilitating disease. We follow her difficult, frightening personal medical journey but opens up a discussion of neuroscience behind a disease.

Mrs. Q liked this book.    Spoiler alert: It takes us on the road to find a newly discovered autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks the brain.  A disease now thought to be tied to both schizophrenia & autism.
