Theres no jargon in it Sean ORourke, RTE As a medical student Niall Tubridy fell in love with neurology. Figuring out how the brain and nervous system signal problems was a form of high stakes detective work and answers could be life-changing. Just One More Question is the story of Niall Tubridys career in neurology. He shares the stories of encounters that are, by turn, poignant, dramatic and funny, such as … The chef who goes for his usual morning walk, and loses his memory for the next six hours The painter who believes her left hand is her guardian angel The eager young lover whose head explodes every time he orgasms Using simple and illuminating language Tubridy also explains well-known conditions like multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease and Parkinsons and and brings us into the examining room as he accompanies patients with these diagnoses on their challenging path. In addition, he reflects candidly on the reasons he, a doctors son, went into medicine, how he has been tested, and what he has learned about people – and about himself – along the way. Revealing, gripping and moving, Just One More Question will make you think in a new way about the human brain – and about what its like to be a doctor.
