One tiny bit of damage to the brain can turn our world upside down. One small area malfunctioning can have bizarre and unpredictable consequences. This episode explores syndromes that alter reality, including a man who is unable to tell animals apart, a woman who believes her husband has been replaced by an impostor, and a hero businessman who intervened in an armed robbery and sustained a brain injury that has had a devastating effect on his sense of reality.
