What We Thought

Title: Phineas Gage

Problem/Conflict

Conclusion

The problem was keeping Phineas alive and also, finding out what caused his personality to change and the science behind it.

In the end, even though Phineas died, Fleischman declares that Phineas is lucky because "he died with his family around him" (Fleischman 75).

I like the Book!

Together AgainAntonio and Hanna Damasio look at people like Phineas. We learn about the frontal lobe.
