Imagine being able to feel what another person is feeling – their sorrow and their pain. Or be convinced that whatever negative change is happening with your friend’s life is actually yours. There are certain brain disorders that cause people to undergo such situations and feel others’ pain or happiness. While brain disorders, or any kind of disorders for that matter, are often shunned by society, it is a serious subject that needs to be talked about more often. Here, we are listing some brain disorders with bizarre symptoms that are often mistaken for psychiatric conditions. brain, emotions, mind, amazing, mind, weird, amazing things, bizzare, stunning, breathtaking, weird things, amazing things, psychiatry, depression, anxiety, cognition, cognitive science, neuro science, neurology, consciousness

1. Sensory Desynchronization is a brain disorder where a person hears voices before people speak.

Imagine a life where the sound and video are out of sync. A group of English researchers have recently come in contact with one such man who experiences life in exactly this way. The man, a retired pilot known as “PH”, experiences sound 200ms (1/5th of a second) before his other senses. This means that he hears things slightly before he sees them, and even hears his own voice slightly before he feels himself speak. While PH’s condition sounds strange, one might think why this doesn’t happen to us since light travels faster than sound.

When we clap our hands together, we hear the sound and see the motion in sync. This is because our brains have an internal clock which processes different signals at various rates so that everything is in sync. We see and hear things at the same time because of how our brain processes these signals together but for PH, there’s a quarter-second delay between hearing a voice and seeing someone’s mouth move. This is caused by a rare brain disorder known as Sensory Desynchronization but PH says he has learned to live with his condition. “It’s not life-threatening,” he says. “You learn to live with these things as you get older. I don’t expect my body to work perfectly”.

2. Huntington’s Disease is a rare inherited disorder that breaks down nerve cells in the brain over time, affecting a patient’s behavior and movement. There’s no cure for this brain disorder.

Huntington’s Disease is an inherited disease that causes nerve cells in the brain to progressively breakdown over time. Signs and symptoms can show up as early as in the 30’s or 40’s and can have a broad impact on a person’s functional abilities. A person suffering from HD can have trouble moving around, thinking (cognitive) and later in life, they can become psychiatric disorders. In its early stages, sufferers will experience mood swings, involuntary jerking, depression, irritability, apathy, or anger, and can become socially withdrawal with a frequent loss of energy.

One of the famous cases involves musician Woody Guthrie, who was misdiagnosed for years before doctors finally figured out that he was suffering from HD. While there are treatments available to help manage symptoms, there is no cure for HD and a sufferer’s health will eventually deteriorate due to the disorder. Over time, sufferers will exhibit unusual behavior and in some cases, can become extremely aggressive… Show More
