Consultant neurologist Dr Jules Montague looks at what remains of the person when they suffer a brain disorder such as dementia or a brain injury. Are they the same person? And could a brain disorder enhance your identity rather than damage it?

Montague examines how we think, remember and behave, and why some memories stay and others are lost. And she goes beyond simple understanding of the brain into the metaphysics of personhood.

‘Like the late Oliver Sacks, Jules Montague writes about bizarre cases . . . And yet, she is also writing about what it is to be human and the surprising fragility of our sense of self.’ Daily Mail

Montague is a consultant based in London with a particular speciality in young-onset dementia. Her work includes seeing patients who have suffered catastrophic brain injury. Here she talks to LBC radio host Matthew Stadlen, a former Telegraph interviewer and BBC presenter.
