Ramachandran Again

title A Journey to the Center of Your Mind
description "In a wide-ranging talk, Vilayanur Ramachandran 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." I'm posting this despite the fact I always have to fix TED Talks' embed code, and despite the fact people (at least two, anyway) are tired of him talking about synaesthesia. It's an okay talk. Thanks for alerting me, Natasha. [OT - Why does everyone who gives a TED Talk look like they slept in the clothes they're wearing?]
