I received this story from a reader.   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1088275/Girl-5-able-shine-epilepsy-surgery-removes-half-brain.html The story is that a 5-yr-old girl who had been having epileptic seizures since she was 2 did not respond to medications and had to try surgery that removed the left hemisphere of her brain as well as the neurons connecting it to the right hemisphere.

Despite this, within just a few weeks after surgery, her speech, and motor skills (left hemisphere) had returned, and she soon went to kindergarten as expected.

Artists – please excuse this detour to my fascination w the brain.  Plasticity (the ability to change) is a gift from G-d, IMHO.
