    I can't remember if it was in his book or one of Sack's where the author
    describes a woman with a focal stroke that had messed up the part of her
    brain that keeps track of location. She insisted she was home, and when
    shown a bank of elevators in the hospital, she remarked on how much they
    had cost to install in her home.
