“Phantoms in the Brain” is a two-part documentary program broadcasted by BBC. The film, which was presented by respected neurologist V.S. Ramachandran highlights the good doctor’s research on different cases of brain damage and their strange, sometimes incredible effects, an area that largely mystified doctors even today.
In the film, Dr. Ramachandran interviews people who suffer a myriad of strange symptoms rooted from brain damage, such as phantom limb pain, anasognosia, and blindsight. Phantoms in The Brain aim to find answers to misunderstood disorders caused by brain damage as well as exciting findings that may point towards ways to cure such symptoms.
