Extras

Eye-catching studies that didn't make the final cut:

Scanning the brains of anorexia patients while they view their own bodies and other people's. Their neural activity is regular when they look at other people's bodies, but unusual when they look at their own.

Schizophrenia is associated with poor facial recognition. Patients with the illness were far worse at spotting faces hidden among neutral pictures than were control participants.

Studying muscled men who think they are small.

Adults with ADHD may be particularly vulnerable to suggestion in police interrogations.
