Half-Life Creatures

The tram rattled and groaned. I was coming home from the city where I’d met up with my son. Usually I’d drive. This time though, the school insisted on the families coming in by train, tram or bus.

The Neuroscience of Pain

On a foggy February morning in Oxford, England, I arrived at the John Radcliffe Hospital, a shiplike nineteen-seventies complex moored on a hill east of the city center, for the express purpose of being hurt.
