Phantoms in the brain-Understanding the mind series 2


V.S. Ramachandran is a mesmerizing speaker, able to concretely and simply describe the most complicated inner workings of the brain. His investigations into phantom limb pain, synesthesia and other brain disorders allow him to explore (and begin to answer) the most basic philosophical questions about the nature of self and human consciousness.

Ramachandran is the director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California, San Diego, and an adjunct professor at the Salk Institute. He is the author of  phantoms in the brain , a brief tour of human consciousness and other books.

Phantoms in the brain

Vilayanur Ramachandran tells us what brain damage can reveal about the connection between celebral tissue and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples.Suprisingly what he talks is very close to what Vedanta says is the perception of the world in the brain.

What if the world you see were an holographic projection of your mind…a series of images that were prerecorded and are being played back to you depending on your own cravings and visions.Watch carefully in the video where he talks about the perception ability of the brain.
