Sabetian Neurology quotes by J.G. Ballard
#1. Fiction is a branch of neurology: the scenarios of nerve and blood vessels are the written mythologies of memory and desire. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#2. We are but a bunch of neurons. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Oliver Sacks
#3. To restore the human subject at the centre - the suffering, afflicted, fighting, human subject - we must deepen a case history to a narrative or tale; only then do we have a 'who' as well as a 'what', a real person, a patient, in relation to disease - in relation to the physical.
The patient's essential being is very relevant in the higher reaches of neurology, and in psychology; for here the patient's personhood is essentially involved, and the study of disease and of identity cannot be disjoined. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Alexandra Robbins
#4. The human brain takes in information from other people and incorporates it with the information coming from its own senses, neuroscientist Gregory Berns has written. Many times, the group's opinion trumps the individual's before he even becomes aware of it. #Quote by Alexandra Robbins
Sabetian Neurology quotes by J.G. Ballard
#5. Fiction is a branch of neurology #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#6. Neurons can create time – they can destroy time – those neurons can create future, they can destroy future – those neurons can create a beautiful world, they can also create a horrible planet to live on – those neurons are both the pedestrians and the path of truth and liberty. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#7. It's been long since thinking humanity has learnt that love is a majestic creation of the brain, yet that knowledge hasn't made love be deemed any less glorious. Then why should it threaten the religious believer to learn that divinity as well is a natural creation of the brain? #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#8. Neurons create soul, soul then reorganizes those neurons, then those reorganized neurons make the soul evolve. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by David Cronenberg
#9. Reality is neurology, and is not absolute. #Quote by David Cronenberg
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#10. Which do you think is more valuable to humanity?
a. Finding ways to tell humans that they have free will despite the incontrovertible fact that their actions are completely dictated by the laws of physics as instantiated in our bodies, brains and environments? That is, engaging in the honored philosophical practice of showing that our notion of "free will" can be compatible with determinism?
b. Telling people, based on our scientific knowledge of physics, neurology, and behavior, that our actions are predetermined rather than dictated by some ghost in our brains, and then sussing out the consequences of that conclusion and applying them to society?
Of course my answer is b). #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Daryl Gregory
#11. Look, you can't think of a person like it's one thing, one 'I' that decides everything. The brain is a collective, a huge number of all these thinking modules. It doesn't make a decision, it arrives at one. #Quote by Daryl Gregory
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Oliver Sacks
#12. What could we do? What should we do? 'There are no prescriptions,' Luria wrote, 'in a case like this. Do whatever your ingenuity and your heart suggest. There is little or no hope of any recovery in his memory. But a man does not consist of memory alone. He has feeling, will, sensibilities, moral being - matters of which neuropsychology cannot speak. And it is here, beyond the realm of an impersonal psychology, that you may find ways to touch him, and change him. [...] Neuropsychologically, there is little or nothing you can do; but in the realm of the Individual, there may be much you can do. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Pat Conroy
#13. Being a failed teenager is not a crime, but a predicament and a secret crucible. It is a fun-house mirror where distortion and mystification led to the bitter reflection that sometimes ripens into self knowledge. Time is the only ally of the humiliated teenager, who eventually discovers the golden boy of the senior class is a bloated, bald drunk at the twentieth reunion, and that the homecoming queen married a wife-beater and philanderer and died in a drug rehabilitation center before she was thirty. The prince of acne rallied in college and is now head of neurology, and the homeliest girl blossoms in her twenties, marries the chief financial officer of a national bank, and attends her reunion as president of the Junior League. But since a teenager is denied a crystal ball that will predict the future, there is a forced march quality to this unspeakable rite of passage. It is an unforgivable crime for teenagers not to be able to absolve themselves for being ridiculous creatures at the most hazardous time of their lives. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#14. Memory is the binding foam of our mental life. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#15. You turned into a cat! A SMALL cat! You violated Conservation of Energy! That's not just an arbitrary rule, it's implied by the form of the quantum Hamiltonian! Rejecting it destroys unitarity and then you get FTL signalling! And cats are COMPLICATED! A human mind can't just visualise a whole cat's anatomy and, and all the cat biochemistry, and what about the neurology? How can you go on thinking using a cat-sized brain? #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Sabetian Neurology quotes by V.S. Ramachandran
#16. It is difficult to overstate the importance of understanding mirror neurons and their function. They may well be central to social learning, imitation, and the cultural transmission of skills and attitudes - perhaps even of the pressed-together sound clusters we call words. By hyperdeveloping the mirror-neuron system, evolution in effect turned culture into the new genome. Armed with culture, humans could adapt to hostile new environments and figure out how to exploit formerly inaccessible or poisonous food sources in just one or two generations - instead of the hundreds or thousands of generations such adaptations would have taken to accomplish through genetic evolution.

Thus culture became a significant new source of evolutionary pressure, which helped select brains that had even better mirror-neuron systems and the imitative learning associated with them. The result was one of the many self-amplifying snowball effects that culminated in Homo sapiens, the ape that looked into its own mind and saw the whole cosmos reflected inside. #Quote by V.S. Ramachandran
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#17. We study humans to give them a healthier and happier life. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#18. Soul is nothing but the functional expression of protoplasmic activity in the brain. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Steven Wright
#19. My nephew has HDADHD. High Definition Attention Deficit Disorder. He can barely pay attention, but when he does it's unbelievably clear. #Quote by Steven Wright
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Winifred Gallagher
#20. Recently, the search for what he calls "the splinters that make up different attention problems" has taken Castellanos in a new direction. First, he explains that your brain is far less concerned with your brilliant ideas or searing emotions than with its own internal "gyroscopic busyness," which consumes 65 percent of its total energy. Every fifty seconds, its activity fluctuates, causing what he calls a "brownout." No one knows the purpose of these neurological events, but Castellanos has a thesis: the clockwork pulses enable the brain's circuits to stay "logged on" and available to communicate with one another, even when they're not being used. "Imagine you're a cabdriver on your day off," Castellanos says. "You don't need to use your workday circuits on a Sunday, but to keep those channels open, your brain sends a ping through them every minute or so. The fluctuations are the brain's investment in maintaining its circuits online. #Quote by Winifred Gallagher
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Arthur Koestler
#21. I have no illusions about the prospects of the theory I am proposing: it will suffer the inevitable fate of being proven wrong in many, or most, details, by new advances in psychology and neurology. What I am hoping for is that it will be found to contain a shadowy pattern of truth, and that it may stimulate those who search for unity in the diverse manifestations of human thought and emotion. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Clifford Geertz
#22. I think what's known about neurology is still scattered and uncertain. #Quote by Clifford Geertz
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#23. Neuroscience is a science in its infancy. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Oliver Sacks
#24. Some people with Tourette's have flinging tics- sudden, seemingly motiveless urges or compulsions to throw objects ... (I see somewhat similar flinging behaviors- though not tics- in my two year old godson, now in a stage of primal antinomianism and anarchy) #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Oliver Sacks
#25. judgment is the most important faculty we have. An animal, or a man, may get on very well without 'abstract attitude' but will speedily perish if deprived of judgment. Judgment must be the first faculty of higher life or mind - yet it is ignored, or misinterpreted, by classical (computational) neurology. And if we wonder how such an absurdity can arise, we find it in the assumptions, or the evolution, of neurology itself. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#26. Cognitive reality of an individual solely arises from the make-up of that individual's brain structure. Any kind of damage, like stroke can alter this reality without the awareness of the individual. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Oliver Sacks
#27. She hoped I would send her some of my papers on neurology, of which I'll understand not one word, but will glow with loving pride at my ridiculous, brilliant and altogether delightful nephew. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#28. Self is an illusory by-product of the brain's response to the environment, with the purpose of survival of life. However, within the subjective realm of the human mind, due to higher brain capacities, the self is capable of creating its own illusory purpose, in an attempt to provide meaning in life. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#29. The human construct of the so-called reality is prone to self−deception. One way or another, we all are being deceived by our own mind. We always see what we want to see. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Wilder Penfield
#30. The problem of neurology is to understand man himself. #Quote by Wilder Penfield
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#31. In this universe, all we perceive is a virtual reality created by the neurons. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Charles Duhigg
#32. Your brain secretly wants that song, because it's so familiar to everything else you've already heard and liked. It just sounds right." There is evidence that a preference for things that sound "familiar" is a product of our neurology. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Lionel Fisher
#33. I may be in deep slop if the findings of a new study published in the latest issue of Neurology, journal of the American Academy of Neurology, prove to be true. The study conducted by University of Eastern Finland tested 1,449 people averaging 71 years of age and found that the subjects labeled "highly cynical" had a 2.54 times greater risk of developing dementia than those with the lowest cynicism rating.

I'd better tell my youngest son, Andy, about the study, too. I think he became a cynic before he turned 30, the predictable result of the massive self-administered force-feedings of the Story of Man in his pursuit of a Ph.D. in American history.

In Andy's defense, reading too much, too soon, of our track record on earth would make a cynic of anyone. Fortunately, his perusals have turned him into a champion of the underdog as well, another inevitability of historical research, particularly studies of our brutal conquest of the American West. #Quote by Lionel Fisher
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Grantly Dick-Read
#34. I emphasize this because some of my colleagues, for whose academic attainments I have great respect, argue 'You assume too much; this is not proved; this is not strictly scientific. We disagree with your neurology and your psychiatry is misleading, therefore you must be wrong.' My reply has been, with all humility: 'Yes, of course,' and I have returned to the labor ward to be greeted by happy women with their newborn babies in their arms: 'How right you are, Doctor, it is so much easier that way.' That is what really matters to the clinician. He should use the method that gives the best and safest result from all points of view until something better is discovered. #Quote by Grantly Dick-Read
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Tina J. Richardson
#35. I'm autistic and most of my children are autistic as well. Please don't tell me how sorry you are for me. I don't need pity. I'm just a mother who has children. Our unique identities and neurology make us who we are. We are perfectly fine just like this, thanks #Quote by Tina J. Richardson
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#36. Every part of the brain plays a crucial role in the construction of something magnificent which we call "mind". But if we observe closely, the mind doesn't exactly exist as one distinct process or entity or system. It's rather an illusion. We can understand this better if we see the mind as a nation. Think of the nation you live in. Is there really any such thing as a "nation"! A nation is simply the collection of activities of a group of people inside an imaginary border. Likewise, mind is the collection of activities of a group of neurons inside the skull. And just like in a nation, when a few neurons malfunction, others can slowly learn to take their place. But when an entire group of neurons in a specific brain region malfunctions, it can impede in the proper functioning of the mind, just like when a huge number of people in an entire state or district stop working, it can affect the functioning of the entire nation. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Lorrie Moore
#37. The later-afternoon air of our exhalations hung in brief clouds before us. The thought balloon of my own breath said, "How have I found myself here?" It was not a theological question. It was one of transportation and neurology. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#38. Biologically speaking, you are the child of Mother Nature, and neurologically speaking, you are the heirs of immortal bliss. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Jill Thrussell
#39. Genesis prepared Samantha's intellect upgrade she was a plain, homely woman quite dismal in appearance, her eyes tarnished with the signs of fatigue like weary stars about to extinguish their light after their existence had expired. She was attempting to secure a highly sought after, well respected research post in neurology as well as seeking to impress a research professor she had her eye on and desired to capture his unsuspecting heart with her knowledge. #Quote by Jill Thrussell
Sabetian Neurology quotes by Alexander R. Luria
#40. A man does not consist of memory alone. He has feeling, will, sensibility, and moral being. #Quote by Alexander R. Luria
