VS Ramachandran on Brain Powers

Call to action: Explore our humanity through science.

Ramachandran explains 3 things:

1. Visual recognition is linked with emotions. (Sure.)
2. Our brain learns from visual cues. (Fascinating with the phantom limb cure!)
3. We are all synesthetes. (I'd like to develop this power.)

I'm pretty sure his 2011 book, The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human will be as captivating.
