Princeton University Press, 2014 - 261 Seiten

"In Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?, Verstynen and Voytek expertly unravel the mysteries of the zombie brain. Equal parts entertaining and informative, this important and brilliant must-read just might save the world someday. I gobbled it up like a zombie eating brains!"--Matt Mogk, author of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Zombies

"Verstynen and Voytek have written an entertaining and accessible book that uses the zombie brain to illustrate some of the key principles of neuroscience. Get your teeth into it!"--Mo Costandi, neuroscience blogger for the Guardian

"For too long, neuroscientists have stood on the sidelines while other disciplines have ravenously studied the zombie menace. With this book, Verstynen and Voytek alter that trend and significantly advance the scholarship of the undead. It's about time that humans showed interest in the zombie brain--and not vice versa."--Daniel Drezner, author of Theories of International Politics and Zombies

"A fascinating look at the living brain through the behavior of the fictional undead. Written by respected neuroscientists with a zombie fixation, this is an engaging and light-hearted neuroscience course with a serious point."--Vaughan Bell, King's College London

"Using zombies from popular film to introduce a broad range of neuroscience concepts, this book argues that we can understand the various features of zombie behavior through the lens of neurological and neuroscientific evidence. Fun and engaging, Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep? will appeal to a broad readership."--Russell Poldrack, University of Texas, Austin
