Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.
They share astructure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.
Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.
For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.
Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen.
Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself.
Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.
As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.
As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.

Ooooh thank you for this fedback!! so like how old was your Dell before it got stepped on?? and how old was your first Toshiba before it got replaced and do you remember what models they were like is it the satellite L series or a U845T or some shit
Anonymous I hope MCM joins Adamson's pep squad (always in the middle lol) His flexibility is freakin perfect. Imagine him showing off his figure skating stunts and moves and wearing that "tight" costume (specifically his pants).

What is a good laptop that will last me a long time?
Had a Toshiba, conked out on me after 3 years. My parents are offering to buy another one so I want something now that is worth their money: durable and sustainable but doesn’t cost as much as an Apple product. I don’t need anything too flashy since I don’t play much other than rpgmaker games
Results on the net gave me Dell, Toshiba Satellite (different from the one I had), Asus and HP.
oh, I don’t want a lenovo! My sis already has a lenovo.
Suggestions or past experiences with any of these laptops please? ?
