How we experience our own bodies is a classical question in psychology and neuroscience. It has long been believed that our body image is limited by our innate body plan -- in other words that we cannot experience having more than one head, two arms and two legs. However, brain scientists at the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institutet have now shown that it is possible to make healthy volunteers experience having three arms at the same time.
Reports say people have been crying on the streets and flocking to the hospital where the boy was born in Baruipur.
A baby boy born with four arms and four legs has sparked panic in his hometown because he looks like an Indian God. The nurses said he was badly deformed but I could see that this was a from God. Chukka Rao, 67, from a neighbouring village, said: "When we first heard about God Boy we were slightly sceptical. But we came to see because we were intrigued by all the news we were hearing from friends and others. This is truly the son of the Hindu God Brahma, who also has four arms and four legs.
But with the village being overrun by curious believers from across the region, policemen say they are having trouble controlling the crowds. A police spokesman said: "This is a freak baby and it is tragic, there is nothing Godly about him at all.
But the crowds are going berserk and clamouring to see the. Some are even panicking and believe this is a of the end of the world. It is only natural that people want to see the God Baby.
Medics say the birth defect is actually the result of the remains of the baby's twin being ed to him in the womb. By Katherine Quinn. Get updates with the day's biggest stories Invalid Something went wrong, please try again later.
