Delusional Lectures

Rather than reading up on Rene Decartes tonight for my General Studies class, I have been intrigued by two TED talks, both of which deal with the mind and delusions.  The first talk is by Dr. Vilayanur S Ramachandran who speaks on the connection between the cerebral tissue of the brain and the mind.  The second talk is by Dr. Oliver Sacks who speaks on hallucinations of blind people, a condition known as Charles Bonnett syndrome.  Both highly fascinating and highly entertaining.
