Abstract

``Met him pike hoses'' Ulysses and the Neurology of Reading TOM SIMONE ``In my book the body lives in and moves through space and is the home of a full human personality. The words I write are adapted to express first one of its functions then another . . .'' ``But the minds, the thoughts of the characters,'' I began. ``If they had no body they would have no mind,'' said Joyce. ``It's all one.'' --Conversation with James Joyce from Frank Budgen, James Joyce and the Making of ``Ulysses'' 1 Early twenty-first century intellectual yearning has led to recent discoveries about observable phenomena of human neurological operations. The development of ever finer instruments of medical imaging, including positron emission tomography (PET) scans and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), have opened up promising revelations concerning the internal operations of the vast neurological system, particularly in the light of evolution and genetics. While imaging cannot yet reveal with sufficient precision or consistency the individual neuron operations of the brain, experiments and surgical operations have allowed a broader observation of fine neurological activity. Clearly, these advances in science and medicine have profound ramifications for the study of the essential yet mysterious
