What was initially thought to be a kind of schizophrenia, with delusional behavior and disturbances of affect, has been identified as something else entirely. The mind of the patient remains intact, and into it, as though by graft, is introduced the mind of another. Another’s thoughts, experiences, memories: these are somehow transmitted by the virus. How it does so is the subject of debate: the plethora of proposed mechanisms is evidence of our continued ignorance. (Blumlein, 235.)
