The Zombie Neuronovel: Steven Schlozman’s The Zombie Autopsies

CNN’s Elizabeth Landau covers zombies and the Dr. Steven Schlozman’s new book, The Zombie Autopsies. Schlozman is a child psychologist who explores the possibility of a zombie-inducing virus through its effects on the human brain in a fictional journal. It is a new kind of neuronovel that brings together the experience of a fictional neuroscientist with zombies. I haven’t read The Zombie Autopsies yet, but it sounds like a fascinating exploration of a deeply embedded cultural what-if through science.
