In 2015, multiple tumors in Neuroscientist Barbara Lipska's brain caused her to, in her words, go insane. Lipska's new book, "The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind," looks back on that experience and explores what her firsthand knowledge can teach us about mental illness and how it affects the human brain.

Guest

Barbara Lipska, director of the Human Brain Collection Core Lab at the National Institute of Mental Health. Her book is "The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind."

This segment aired on April 23, 2018.
