Brain in a Jar tells the gut-wrenching yet heart-warming tale of a pioneer in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Beauregard Lee Bercaw, an American neurologist and world traveller, believed from a very young age that Alzheimer's was coming for him just as it had for his father. In an attempt to outsmart and outrun the disease, Dr. Bercaw embarks on one global adventure after another. He raises his beloved daughter Nancy to believe that she is a mermaid who can outswim suffering if she puts her mind to it. When her father does succumb to Alzheimer's, Nancy goes in search of his memories. Brain in a Jar is a Gothic tale of love, grief, genetics, obsession, adventure, fear and courage. The Bercaws might blow your mind while breaking your heart, but they'll show you why Alzheimer's disease must take center stage in politics, medicine and art.
