I'm trying to remember the title/author of a book. I'll try to provide as many details as I can.
I remember this character who had some kind of digital socket in his brain. He could not only record/load experiences from his memory, but he could also process them with some kind of filtering. For instance, I remember that he processed a memory as if it was lived by a dog to enhance smell and hearing. One more thing, I remember clearly that these experiences were called "picchi" in italian (which was the language in which I read the book). I think the closest translation is "peaks" or "spikes" in english. If you don't remember the title but you can give me more details I would appreciate that too!
Thanks to everyone in advance for their answers.
EDIT: I read this book in italian, maybe three or four years ago, but I'm 99% sure that the book was translated from english. It might be Palahniuk or Philip K. Dick, if this helps.
SOLVED: It is "Rant" by Chuck Palahniuk. Italian title was "Rabbia".
