In this episode of Radiolab, strange stories of
brains that lead their owners astray, knock them off balance, and, sometimes,
propel them to do amazing things.
We hear from a kid whose voice was disguised
from himself, relive a surreal day in the life of a young researcher who was
hijacked by her own brain, and try to keep up with an ultra-athlete who, after
suffering terrible seizures, gained extraordinary abilities through removing a
chunk of her brain.
