This chapter concerns Ian’s Canadian and French research trips, to Laval University, Quebec, and to Marseille. In Canada he met one of the other people with his condition, Ginette Lizotte, who had also agreed to be an experimental subject. Experiments in Quebec looked at Ian’s ability to make a new movement without practice, his perception of weight, a mirror drawing task, and even whether his perception of time is intact. In Marseille experiments explored coordination of eye and hand movements. These trips showed how Ian was increasingly able to be critical of both experiments and neuroscientists when they appeared insufficiently questioning or careful.

Keywords:   weight perception, gait analysis, mirror drawing, eye–hand coordination, Ginette Lizotte
