Neurological Science - This is the science of the nervous system--brain, spinal cord, nerves, and synapses. It is the main focus of both the author's medical practice and his research.
The Mountain - This is the place of the author's accident. It provides many metaphors for his struggle through recovery.
The Bull - This creature inadvertently caused the author's injury. While the author's initial impressions are that the animal is peaceful rather than hostile, the author's perceptions and reactions are the cause of his hasty flight and, eventually, his accident.
