Very interesting piece in wired about neuroplasticity, the ability of your brain to "remap" itself to accept other inputs. The idea about the belt that allows you to always know where north is sounds like a great idea. I can definitely understand how you would get used to something like that though and feel like something was missing when you took it off.
Okay, this is just nuts. This guy was having trouble with a hand tremor caused by a brain problem. While they have his head cut open, he plays the banjo so they can make sure they have the right spot on the brain. Like a weird episode of House or something. Make sure to watch the video. Just crazy.
