Indian baby born with two faces

The child apparently has an extremely rare condition known as craniofacial duplication, where a single head has two faces. All of Lali's facial features are duplicated with the exception of her ears, she has two. Lali's parents say she feeds through one mouth and sucks her thumb with the other, otherwise "She is just like any other child".

This kid has four eyes. Can she see through all of them? Is the brain even capable of parsing that sort of input (assuming the eyes are intact and functional)?

I lived in the midwest for years, and there are a lot of two-faced people. Ha!

Believe me, I can relate! :-)

I'm curious what her brain is like. I wonder how her vision and senses of smell and taste are being processed.
