A Ramachandran lecture...
In this excellent and engaging talk, Vilayanur Ramachandran discusses how brain damage can reveal the connection between internal structures of the brain and corresponding functions of the mind. Focus is on 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.)
