Defending the cavewoman : and other tales of evolutionary neurology by Harold L Klawans( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Harold Klawans examines people ranging from the woman suffering from "painful foot and moving toe syndrome," whose case reminds him that we were once reptiles with brains at the bases of our spines, to the farmer from Indiana who didn't have mad cow disease, but something similar, caused by a protein-like pathogen that man himself has helped nurture by removing the pressures of natural selection from his herds of livestock and from his own communities. As Klawans notes, "almost all of man's recent 'evolution' takes place outside the body ... because man can alter his environment in ways that no other species ever could." In the best tradition of clinical tales, this physician storyteller weaves into his patient narratives insights into the evolutionary legacy encoded in the brain and the remarkable capacity of the human mind."--Jacket

Here the author of the highly acclaimed Toscanini's Fumble and Newton's Madness recounts how as a terrified resident he once confused the smell of his own nervous sweat with the odor of the patient - which turns out to be the essential clue in the diagnosis. We meet the "Lone Ranger" who becomes a mummy after he's given an experimental drug for schizophrenia; the vice president of a bank who believes that snake venom will cure his Lou Gehrig's disease; a man whose eyes, even while driving, suddenly, spontaneously, close; and an eminent neurologist from Vienna whom Klawans exposes as having been a member of the SS. One of the most chilling stories chronicles the drama of a patient whose family chooses to keep him confined to his wheelchair and refuses him treatment to satisfy their own need for control
