lectures about the brain

there's a good series of lectures about the brain and research into how the brain works from the BBC. its very interesting, linked from boingboing.


A patient I saw not long ago who had been in a car accident, had sustained a head injury and was in a coma for about a couple of weeks. Then he came out of this coma and he was quite intact neurologically when I examined him. But he had one profound delusion - he would look at his mother and say "Doctor, this woman looks exactly like my mother but she isn't, she is an imposter".

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
