Hedonia is the name psychiatrist Robert Heath gave to the brain’s pleasure centre, a mystical place he searched for and wanted to influence. 30 years later, neuroscience has seen an explosive development in “deep brain stimulation”. With electrodes permanently implanted in the brain, scientists can adjust abnormal activity. But what is normal? Written by science journalist and author Lone Frank and narrated by Tilda Swinton, Pernille Rose Grønkjær’s HUNTING FOR HEDONIA lays a scientific foundation for important existential and ethical questions.
