The Boy With The Incredible Brain

Most of you know this already. It’s very interesting, though. Gives you a glimpse into life with Asperger syndrome and synaesthesia… Try to ignore the annoying journalist…

If you’re interested in Tammet’s story, check out his blog.


VS Ramachandran on your mind

This is one of my favourite TED talks. Ramachandran can be easily understood, even if you know nothing about the brain.  He’s also very funny like most clever people.

According to Richard Dawkins “Ramachandran is a latter-day Marco Polo, journeying the silk road of science to strange and exotic Cathays of the mind. He returns laden with phenomenological treasures…which, in his subtle and expert telling, yield more satisfying riches of scientific understanding.”

In this video he talks about 3 very interesting topics: Capgras Delusion, Phantom Limbs, Synaesthesia
