Mirror Touch [Audio]

Rating
Dr. Joel Salinas is a Harvard-trained researcher and neurologist with extraordinary gifts that provide him unique access to his patients and enable him to experience life in an extraordinary way. He has mirror-touch synesthesia, a neurological trait that allows him to feel others' emotions and physical sensations. Susceptible to the pain and discomfort of his patients--most of whom suffer from strokes, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, and a host of other painful disorders and extreme injuries--Salinas uses his heightened emphatic ability to help understand and better treat their conditions.Using his own experiences as a neurologist and synesthete as a narrative through-line, Salinas also shares the remarkable stories of equally remarkable subjects who similarly live in a heightened state of awareness, whether because of a congenital condition, after a seemingly debilitating stroke, or amid an ecstatic seizure.Written with intelligence and compassion, and anchored by the latest developments in neurology, psychology, and psychiatry, Mirror Touch is an enthralling investigation into the power of the brain--one that proves that the mind, in wondrous and mysterious fashion, continues to promise exciting and inexhaustible ways to think, to see, and to be.
