Neuroscience Research: The Man Whose Brain Borrowed Nearby Identities

The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat by Oliver Sacks

The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat by Oliver Sacks

The article, “The Man Whose Brain Borrowed Nearby Identities“, from the Science of Us website, is about a man who:

seemed to “lack a personal sense of identity” and would borrow the identity of whoever happened to be nearby: a hairstylist, an art therapist, and a member of the clergy, to name a few.

It’s a case that’s very similar to the one I’m illustrating from the case study, “A Matter of Identity” from the book that we’re using for our Neuroscience project, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat by Oliver Sacks.

I find both cases fascinating and horrifying at the same time, and it’s a challenge finding some way of interpreting, through art, their chaotic inner worlds, but I do enjoy a good challenge. Do have a peek at the article, and get yourself the book if you like exploring problems of the inner psyche, it’s wonderfully written. Cheers.
