What Can You Do With Half a Brain?

In light of my going postal for a moment regarding my son’s brain, I bring you a post on how awesome the brain is. I finished the book The Brain that Changes Itself and highly recommend it. It addresses the issue of plasticity in the brain; how we can learn and unlearn necessary skills; how the rest of the brain will pitch in and get the job done if part of it is injured or diseased. If you’d rather just get the gist of it, then watch this amazing video by a different doctor.
