TED Talk: A journey to the center of your mind
After reading Imagination and the Meaningfull Brain I rememberd a TED talk from Vilayanur Ramachandran. He explores how brain damage can reveal the connection between the internal structures of the brain and the corresponding functions of the mind. He talks about phantom limb pain, synesthesia (when people hear color or smell sounds), and the Capgras delusion, when brain-damaged people believe their closest friends and family have been replaced with imposters.
