TED Talk: VS Ramachandran on Your Mind

Renowned neurologist V.S. Ramachandran gave a TED talk a while ago about various issues in neurophysiology.  Ramachandran is a captivating speaker and interesting to watch even if you do not have a direct interest in neurology.  He provides fascinating insight into some amazing neurological discoveries which were made with patients that have brain damage.  He discusses at length his discoveries about 'phantom limb pain' which is pain an amputee can psychologically experience in the limb that was amputated.  He also speaks about a type of amnesia and his remarkable his theory of synesthesia.
