The boundary between our physiology and psychology is blurry and fragile at best. We are aware of the power our minds can hold over our bodies through placebo effects, psychosomatic disorders and monumental athletic achievements made possible by the exertion of sheer will. We also know that the physiology of our brains can have dramatic effects on our mood, impulses, memories and cognitive prowess. Yet, even with modern day’s impressive level of medical advancement, there is still tremendous mystery surrounding our understanding of where our body ends and our “self” begins. I am particularly interested in how this knowledge, or lack thereof, impacts our ability and desire to control our surroundings and selves.
