Issue 13 – Inside the mind

Feb-Mar 2007

In this special brain issue of Cosmos Magazine, we delve into the wonders of the mind. We take you on an incredible photographic journey into an operating theatre as surgeons work to remove a brain aneurysm, catalogue the amazing abilities of a young blind boy who uses sonar navigation to find his way around objects, uncover the 1,500 year history of brain surgery, and recount the tale of Phineas Gage – a man who gained fame after surviving having a metal spike driven through his brain.
