About the Book

In THE GRIEVING BRAIN renowned grief expert and neuroscientist, Mary-Frances O'Connor shares groundbreaking discoveries about what happens in our brain when we grieve, providing a new paradigm for understanding love, loss, and learning. In this book, O'Connor makes cutting-edge neuroscience accessible through her contagious enthusiasm, and guides us through how we encode love and grief. With love, our neurons help us form attachments to others; but, with loss, our brain must come to terms with where our loved ones went, or how to imagine a future that encompasses their absence. Based on O’Connor’s own trailblazing neuroimaging work, research in the field, and her real-life stories, THE GRIEVING BRAIN does what the best popular science books do, combining storytelling, accessible science, and practical knowledge that helps us better understand what happens when we grieve and how to navigate loss with more ease and grace.
