Does the Brain Explain Your Mind?

Brain psychologist V.S. Ramachandran believes the mysterious phenomena we call the mind, the location of our consciousness, is directly accessible through study of the brain. "The consensus today is that there is a good deal of specialization in the brain, even down to very fine-grained capacities, such as our ability to detect color, shape, and motion—though there is also a degree of plasticity. The way a neurologist like Ramachandran investigates the anatomy–psychology connection is mainly to consider abnormal cases: patients with brain damage due to stroke, trauma, genetic abnormality, etc."
