The human brain is an extraordinary organ. Functioning at optimal levels, it is our best friend, performing tasks from regulating our breathing and heart rate, to coordinating our movements, allowing us to interpret touch, and develop reasoning. There are approximately 86 billion neurons in the brain, which fire information electrochemically, via connections called synapses, at speeds of up to 250 mph.
But illness, disease and damage to this sophisticated instrument that we rely upon, can produce some extraordinary and hugely distressing results in how we perceive reality, and how we behave. Here we look at 5, thankfully rare, but truly strange psychological delusions.
