Psychiatrist and neurologist Todd Feinberg and writer Tom Fontana on this archive edition of Fresh Air. Todd Feinberg's new book is called Altered Egos: How the Brain Creates the Self. What is the self? and what is the relationship between the brain and selfhood? Feinberg uses the stories and interesting cases of his patients to try and answer these questions from a neurological and psychological standpoint. Feinberg claims that the way patients with brain damage or disorders like "alien hand syndrome" talk about themselves can tell us a lot about how the brain "creates" itself. Dr. Feinberg is associate professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Chief of the Betty and Morton Yarmon Division of Neurobehavior and Alzheimer's Disease at the Beth Israel Medical Center of New York. Executive producer and writer, Tom Fontana of HBO's Oz, the realistic drama about life in an experimental unit of a maximum security prison. Fontana also created Homicide: Life on the Street and the 1980s drama set in a city hospital, St. Elsewhere. (Original Broadcast Date: January 30, 2001) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Gross.

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together into romantic relationships, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible forces. When individuals with healthy emotional backgrounds meet, the irresistible love force creates a sustainable, reciprocal and stable relationship. Codependents and emotional manipulators are similarly enveloped in a seductive dreamlike state; however, it will later unfold into a painful seesaw of love, pain, hope and disappointment. The soul mate of the codependent's dreams will become the emotional manipulator of their nightmares. Listeners of the Human Magnet Syndrome will better understand why they, despite their dreams for true love, find themselves hopelessly and painfully in love with partners who hurt them. This audiobook will guide and inspire both the layman and the professional. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Todd Reinhardt.

The true story of a murderous mother and five innocent victims. Charles Hickey, Todd Lighty, and John O’Brien bring the story of a mother not fit for the title. Waneta Hoyt’s first baby died. Then her second. Then her third. Nobody, including her husband, suspected Waneta Hoyt - or stopped her from having more babies. Then her fourth baby died. Then her fifth. And the famed medical expert declared they had died of sudden infant death syndrome and use them to support his theory that SIDS ran in families. One man, however, did not except the diagnosis. District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick set out to expose the truth about a crime hard to imagine. To do so meant convicting a woman who had won the hearts of all. And just proving a doctor who had climbed to the top of his field with the help of little corpses. Brace yourself for a true story of motherhood, medicine, and murder you will remember every time you hear a baby crying. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelley Huston.

What would you do if you knew a child who was being abused? If that child was a member of your family? Would you call the authorities and have the child taken away, or would you turn a blind eye? These are the kind of questions that Lost in Thought provokes. The author, who lived through the atrocities mentioned in this audiobook, paints a vivid if disturbing image of child abuse and how it affects the psyche as one grows older. What begins as abuse leads quickly to suicidal thoughts and loss of control.Lost in Thought is the unbelievable true story of a child who was in this predicament. His mother, who was hooked on prescription pills, sexually abused him for years and convinced him that nothing was out of the ordinary. Family members knew of the horrifying situation yet did nothing to stop it. He distanced himself from his family as he grew older only to become more of an outcast.This is the powerful true story of a man who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome on the autism spectrum in his mid-20s, overcame adversity, and took back control of his life before it was too late. 1.
