The Boy Who Felt Too Much
Of all people, Henry Markram, one of the most renowned neuroscientists of the world, became father of an autistic child. This unbelievable coincidence brings together two perspectives: world class scientific inquiry and the daily confrontation with reality in a family life with an autistic child. Markram’s 15-year research – at universities like Berkeley, Weizman Institute, Max Planck Institute – let us see the condition of autism in a completely new way. A book, written like a novel, based on facts, accessible for everyone.
