Archives of Pravachan: Capgras Syndrome

In my crazy conversation with Sid Warrier, we ranked some of the weirdest scientific mysteries. One such mystery is Alzheimer’s. We still don’t have concrete answers to what causes it.

We have got many strange phenomena in it, like the Capgras syndrome. Here’s a small monologue on it by Sid:

“In Alzheimer's, there is something called Capgras Syndrome. And what happens in Capgras syndrome is that your mother or father who has Alzheimer's forgets who you are and they start getting paranoid that who is this person feeding me, giving me clothes, telling me to do this, telling me to do that, giving me medicines. This has to be an imposter. Probably somebody has hired them to kill me and I need to get out.”
