If you are a psychology or neuroscience major, you probably have heard about, took a class by, or flat out worship this man. Dr. Vilayanur Ramachandran is a legend to all psychology students. You have seen his work in textbooks from AP Psychology to your upperdivision courses, watched videos of his research in your classes, or if you are as fortunate as I have been, taken his personal class. Dr. Ramachandran is most recognized for his discovery of the phantom limb and mirror visual feedback. No wonder he is called the “Marco Polo of neuroscience” and “the modern day Paul Broca”. TIME magazine even listed him as one of the Top 100 Influential People of the World. Dr. Ramachandran has made special appearances on PBS, BBC, The Science Channel, TED Talks, and many more programs. He has over 180 published papers in scientific journals and his book The Tell Tale Brain has been on the New York Times Best Seller List. UCSD is so fortunate to have Dr. Ramachandran active in our university. Not only is he a renowned scientist, but he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses. Talk about a man who cares about the future of psychology and neuroscience! If you haven’t already, sign up for his classes! It is an honor to learn from such an amazing individual.
