He returns laden with Vilayanur Ramachandran. THE. EMERGING. MIND. THE REITH LECTURES.

Ramachandran was one of the first researchers to recognize the potential of neuroimaging technology to demonstrate the plastic changes that take place in the human cortex after amputation.

In , Ramachandran served as an expert witness on pseudocyesis false pregnancy at the trial of Lisa M. Ramachandran has been outspoken about his intuition based approach to studying the brain. In an interview with Frontline magazine [20] Ramachandran stated: Intuition is what gets you started; then you need empirical studies So sometimes, not having technology - that's my own approach and that of some of my colleagues, we use it only when it's absolutely essential, just like medical diagnostics.

We rely more on intuition in doing simple experiments, because if you rely on fancy medical imaging, you become less creative. To test this theory, Ramachandran recruited amputees, so that he could learn more about if phantom limbs could "feel" a stimulus to other parts of the body. Yang, S. Gallen, and others at the Scripps Research Institute who were conducting MEG research, [22] Ramachandran initiated a project to demonstrate that there had been measurable changes in the somatosensory cortex of a patient who had undergone an arm amputation.

In , Ramachandran made a prediction that "mirror neurons will do for psychology what DNA did for biology: they will provide a unifying framework and help explain a host of mental abilities that have hitherto remained mysterious and inaccessible to experiments.

Ramachandran found that in some cases restoring movement to a paralyzed phantom limb reduced the pain experienced. A review found that MT can exert a strong influence on the motor network, mainly through increased cognitive penetration in action control.

Main article: Synesthesia Ramachandran was one of the first scientists to theorize that grapheme-color synesthesia arises from a cross-activation between brain regions. As of , the neurological basis of synesthesia had not been established.

Ramachandran's "broken mirrors hypothesis" explanation for autism remains controversial.

Building on medical case studies that linked brain damage to syndromes such as somatoparaphrenia lack of limb ownership the authors speculated that the desire for amputation could be related to changes in the right parietal lobe.

In , he was inspired by Tim Pons's research on cortical plasticity. Pons demonstrated cortical reorganization in monkeys after the amputation of a finger. Ramachandran was one of the first researchers to recognize the potential of neuroimaging technology to demonstrate the plastic changes that take place in the human cortex after amputation.

As of , the neurological basis of synesthesia had not been established.So we devised a simple display on the computer screen, a number of 5s scattered on the screen, black 5s, just black and white. He pointed out that some people who are perfectly normal in other respects have one peculiar symptom, if you want to call it a symptom, and that is these people who are otherwise completely normal, they get their senses mixed up and that is every time they hear a particular tone they see a particular colour.

We can then compare the two lists and ask, is there a common denominator in each list that distinguishes it from the other? Yang, S. No pre-knowledge, no tools, no teachers!
