A List in Progress: Neuroscience and Science Fiction Literature

Today, I am launching a list of Neuroscience and Science Fiction Literature on the Research section of DynamicSubspace.net.

Organized chronologically and annotated with notes, the list collects examples of SF that emphasize the biology of the brain over the psychology of the mind. It spans from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) to the present.

It is a list in progress. As I find new examples or readers submit suggestions, I will update the list and note the date on the page.

If you’re interested in how SF is uniquely suited to explore the human brain and the biological underpinnings of the human condition, please take a look at the list and let me know of other examples that I have missed by leaving a comment or emailing me at dynamicsubspace [at] gmail . Also, I would enjoy hearing from folks who might find the list useful in their research.
