"The Mess He Made" -- author's personal experience with hoarding. Not very science-y, but interesting.

"What Broke My Father's Heart" -- another personal essay, about the downside of a pacemaker artificially extending the life of an elderly man unable to care for himself after a stroke. Powerful & informative.
