Sobre o livro
My Journey from Asperger's to Emotional Awakening. Six years ago, John Elder Robison published 'Look Me in the Eye', his memoir about growing up with Asperger's. Now he tells the remarkable story of how he met Dr Alvaro Pascual-Leone, a Harvard neuroscientist who proposed that John's emotional intelligence wasn't so much absent as dormant, and that by stimulating the appropriate neural pathways with powerful electromagnets they could awaken this part of his brain. So began a five-and-a-half year journey, during which John became a test subject... 'Switched On' is a compelling memoir, blending brilliant storytelling with cutting-edge science.
