Dr. David Linden, primary member of the Neuroscience Department, writes candidly in The Atlantic about his cancer diagnosis, and how this altered his perspective of the mind. The article is written with Dr. Linden's typical humor and insights about life and neuroscience.
As Dr. Linden himself says "It’s not actually quite as much of a big, bad bummer as the title would suggest. Please do give it a look."
