Before there was Ramachandran with "phantoms in the Brain," there was Howard Gardner to relate the effects of brain damage on the Person (with a capital P). He's terrific...and so are the stories.
Fascinating, fascinating, fascinating.... The mind is truly an amazing organ.
Good review of neuroanatomy with a strong focus on aphasia.
