Mirror Touch: Notes from a Doctor Who Can Feel Your Pain
by Joel Salinas, M.D Author
Dr. Joel Salinas is a Harvard-trained researcher and neurologist with extraordinary gifts. He has mirror-touch synesthesia, a neurological trait that allows him to feel others’ emotions and physical sensations. Susceptible to the pain and discomfort of his patients—most of whom suffer from strokes, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, and a host of other painful disorders and extreme injuries—Salinas uses his heightened emphatic ability—what he calls “compulsory mindfulness”—to help understand and better treat their conditions.
