     View Summary

    The major purpose of this project is to bring a new scholarly perspective to the field of trauma studies in the humanities, which is in the ongoing process of revising the traditional trauma research model. In deeply understanding the long-prevailing problem of biological determinism in medicine, I affiliate the notion of brain plasticity with the new scholarly trends to revise the dominant trauma theory. In this project, I would like to create a disciplinary bridge between neurobiology and the recent scholarly movement in trauma studies in the humanities.
