Radiolab: When Brains Attack

In this episode, strange stories of brains that lead their owners astray, knock them off balance and propel them to do amazing things. We hear from a kid whose voice was disguised from himself, relive a surreal day in the life of a young researcher hijacked by her own brain and try to keep up with an ultra-athlete who, after suffering terrible seizures, gained extraordinary abilities by removing a chunk of her brain.
