Ahmed Youssef  asked the Naked Scientists:
Hi chris, as always, i love the show.

I have a theoretical biology question for you. if one's eye could be removed from his/her eye socket, but still remain connected and functional, and placed directly in front of the other eye, would there be any signal or operation happenings in that person's brain as a result of looking at one's own eye?


What do you think?

I don't see why there should be; look into your own eyes in a mirror and nothing strange happens.
