Speaking of which, has anyone thought about the idea of implanting Peltier
junctions into their corpus callosum, and giving themself a complete (but
temporary) lesion of the corpus callosum? (For those who are not familiar
with them, Peltier junctions absorb heat when a current is passed through 
them, thus acting as "thermoelectric refrigerators".)

One could write a book about one's experiences, while under the influence of
the "split brain" lesion, and perhaps call it: "A Callosal Adventure"!

Sorry  :-).
