How would it feel to suddenly be able to understand emotions? We talk to John Elder Robinson of Springfield, Massachusetts, who describes this experience in his new book "Switched On: A Memoir of Brain Change and Emotional Awakening."
- "I mean, I had some really hard times. I was driven to be almost suicidal, my marriage fell apart, I embarked on a disastrous relationship after that, and took five years for me to be remarried, stable and settle down again. TMS actually changed how I saw my memories as a child. I now remember times when people were laughing, but now thanks to TMS, I realize they were laughing at me.”
- "They say, be careful what you wish for. The intervention succeeded beyond my wildest dreams — and it turned my life upside down. After one of my first T.M.S. sessions, in 2008, I thought nothing had happened. But when I got home and closed my eyes, I felt as if I were on a ship at sea. And there were dreams — so real they felt like hallucinations."
