How does our brain produce the sense of self? And, if we have no memories, who are we? How do brain surgeons, operating to save a life, feel about their ability to dim or destroy memory, or to separate memories from their emotions? Colin Thubron’s new novel, Night of Fire, addresses these questions, among many others. He teases them out with Professor John Aggleton FRS, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience.
