Alex Clark talks to the renowned neuroscientist Adrian Owen who has dedicated his career to working with patients in the ‘grey zone’ between full consciousness and brain death. Often the victims of severe brain trauma or degenerative disease, they are the remarkable 20% who – often dismissed as vegetative – are in fact fully intact minds adrift deep within damaged bodies. Together with academic Jim Byatt, whose work looks at the liminal narratives used by authors such as JG Ballard and Iain Banks, they discuss this fascinating shadowy realm of the borderlands between life and death.
