Description
"Estudiante de doctorado en neurociencia, Gifty explora la conducta en ratones para investigar el funcionamiento de los circuitos neuronales de la depresión y la adicción, dos enfermedades que han causado estragos entre sus seres más queridos: su hermano, Nana, era una promesa del atletismo que murió hace años a causa de una sobredosis de heroína tras una lesión de tobillo y la dependencia al OxyContin, mientras que su madre ha vuelto a caer en una depresión severa. Aunque Gifty está decidida a descubrir la base científica que anida en el sufrimiento familiar, se topa una y otra vez con la fe religiosa y los valores de la Iglesia evangélica que marcaron su infancia, un mundo cuya promesa de salvación sigue siendo tan tentadora como inalcanzable."--Provided by publisher.
Description
"Neuroscience PhD student, Gifty explores behavior in mice to investigate the workings of the neural circuits of depression and addiction, two illnesses that have wreaked havoc among loved ones: his brother, Nana, was a promise of athletics who died years ago of a heroin overdose following an ankle injury and dependence on OxyContin, while her mother has fallen back into severe depression. Although Gifty is determined to uncover the scientific basis for family suffering , he comes across again and again the religious faith and values of the evangelical Church that marked his childhood, a world whose promise of salvation remains as tempting as it is unattainable."- Provided by publisher.
