The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat written By Oliver Sachs Storyboard by Yuval Vaknin
The Man Who mistook his hat is a book that describes the many brain disorders and their effects on people. It talks about wide ranges of physical and emotional effects that these disorders can give. Sometimes there is a solution that allows for the disorder to be less of a burden. I found the book very interesting and hopefully you will too.
The first of these clinical tales is about the man who mistook his wife for a hat, who suffers from damage to his occipital lobes, making it hard to understand what he sees. The problem isn't in his eyes rather in the part of the brain in charge of interpreting what he sees. Instead of seeing people, he only visualizes certain elements of them, like their nose or eyes or ears. This is the cause for him to mistakenly see his wife as actually being a hat.
