A Collection of Unusual Neurological States

This is pretty interesting. Kind of small for a "collection" though. There are 4 neurological states described with a link for each to further research or articles. If nothing else, this is an excellent source for story ideas for you creative types.

It includes Capgras' Syndrome ("The Capgras' patient will typically identify people close to them as being imposters - identical in every possible way, but identical replicas."), along with some other, even more disturbing neurological hiccups.

I'm especially intrigued by Cotard's Syndrome, where the patient believes that they are dead, even though they are walking and talking. Creepy.
