The neurology of the undead

Wired has an excellent neurological guide to surviving the zombie holocaust that will keep you one shamble ahead when the undead attack.

The article and the wonderful accompanying infographics were inspired by the work of neuroscientist Bradley Voyek who, when he is not poking around in the decaying brains of zombies, looks at communication networks in the human brain.

    I love it how they’ve actually diagnosed the condition as Consciousness Deficit Hypoactivity Disorder. That’s amazing in a very unsettling way.-)

    Thanks for sharing the link!
