ABSTRACT
The article reports that neuroscientists have induced a creepy feeling in a woman with epilepsy while stimulating the left side of her brain electrically. The woman described how a shadowy man troubled her. Researcher Olaf Blanke at the University Hospital in Geneva, Switzerland, and his colleagues believe the stimulated area, which is known to process information in the brain, may be affected in psychiatric patients.
