Why do some people claim to see colors in numbers, or feel pain in amputated limbs? The puzzling world of human consciousness is probed in Brief Tour Of Human Consciousness by Dr. Ramachandran, director of the Center for Brain and Cognition, who provides a neurologist's approach to understanding the human brain and perceptions, from textures in smells and sounds in sights to seeing colors in numbers or shapes.
