Editorial Reviews

Review

"BRAINWASHED delivers the goods: thrills, gut-churning suspense, nightmarish terror. Ruth and Michael Harris have delivered another great read and sure bestseller. I dare you to put it down!" --Bob Mayer, former Green Beret and million-copy bestselling author of AREA 51

From the Author

Brainwashed is based on real-life psychiatric experiments known by the code name MK-ULTRA and conducted by the CIA in the 1950's and 1960's. MKUltra involved the use of various methodologies to manipulate mental states and alter brain function, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture. Although the CIA insists that MKUltra-type experiments have been abandoned, some CIA observers say there is little reason to believe it does not continue today under a different set of acronyms. (This information is quoted from Wikipedia.)

Prosopagnosia: As a consequence of volunteering to take part in the MK-ULTRA experiments, Zeb Marlowe suffers from a neurological disorder that causes face blindness called prosopagnosia.  Prosopagnosia is a cognitive disorder in which the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while other aspects of visual processing (e.g., object discrimination) and intellectual functioning (e.g., decision making) remain intact.

According to the Prosopagnosia Research Center at Harvard and University College London, "Prosopagnosics often have difficulty recognizing family members, close friends, and even themselves. They often use alternative routes to recognition, but these routes are not as effective as recognition via the face."

Oliver Sacks, a professor of neurology at the N.Y.U. School of Medicine and the author of "Awakenings," writes about the current science and his own experiences and strategies in living with prosopagnosia at newyorker.com/magazine/2010/08/30/face-blind?intcid=mod-most-popular

Leslie Stahl reported on prosopagnosia on 60 Minutes. cbsnews.com/news/face-blindness-when-everyone-is-a-stranger-20-03-2012/

Prosopagnosia is also referred to as "face blindness." You will find more information about this condition at faceblind.org at faceblind.org/research/index.html
