Dr. Peter Cummings is a Staff Medical Examiner and Director of Forensic Neuropathology at the Boston office of the Massachusetts Medical Examiner. His first book, Atlas of Forensic Histopathology, is a university text — and his second, The Neuropathology of Zombies, is a horror novel. Cummings theory that many neurological medical conditions can create zombie-like symptoms will be the basis of his introduction to the film.
