Alpha privative

Gardini, Nicola

Neuro-scientific writing is the realm of lacuna. Not only is lacuna an important object
of interest for neuroscientists (in whatever form of impairment – be it linguistic or
physical), but lacuna is the main source – and was for a long time the sole source – of
neuro-scientific knowledge (today, research can count on such a revolutionary technique
as brain-imaging – fMRI and PET). To read neuroscience means fundamentally to
become acquainted with deficits.
