I heard a podcast about him this past summer on Stuff You Missed in History Class (I am a huge junkie of Discovery’s How Stuff Works podcasts) and they talked a lot about the influence his case had on neuroscience while laying down the pertinent narrative of his life with the injury. Thank you for linking up and bringing such a cool and colorful figure into the challenge this month. You are welcome back any time! Reply Thanks, Rob! What a great challenge — I’ll definitely write some other haiku bios. I’ve always been fascinated by Gage and will definitely look for that podcast. Reply Sweet, you’ll love it! And I look forward to your haiku bios! Is that the Spike? I always imagined it a lot smaller. Reply Yes! And it weighed 13 lbs/6 kg!
