    What a great overview of Mike's situation. My bookgroup is discussing Crashing Through today and this was a great supplement–I'll share it with them. Thank you so much.

    What a fantastic educator! I am taking a neuropsychology class right now, and I was transfixed (we were just tested on the occipital lobe). Thank you for posting this and for being such a caring, thinking person.
