Heart or Head?

Having had multiple brushes with serious injury, several involving my spine, I’ve come to the conclusion that the most important organ in the process of healing is your brain, no matter where the injury is. This piece in the Washington Post really intrigues me. A fellow who has an artificial heart claims he has lost the ability to feel emotions. He feels “cold hearted.”

I think this is all in his head. And I have no right to say that, as I’m no expert. But that’s what I think.
