What would you do if you were locked in your body, your brain intact but with no way to communicate?  How do you survive emotionally when you are invisible to everyone you know and love?  That’s the first question asked by NPR’s new program on human behavior, Invisibilia.  The first show tells the story of Martin Pistorius, who fell into a mysterious coma as a young boy.  He had only one thing left as his mind began to function again — his own thoughts.  You can listen to NPR’s fascinating episode on Martin Pistorius by CLICKING HERE.  To listen to other episodes of Invisibilia, including “Dark Thoughts” and “Locked-In Man” visit Invisiblia on NPR.  The team at Radiolab recently sat down for an interview with Invisibilia’s hosts Lulu Miller and Alix Spiegel, and you can listen to it in full below.  (Photo courtesy of Martin Pistorius).
