Boy Who Had One Sixth of His Brain Removed Shows Normal Cognitive Function and “Above Average” Reading Level
One of the great ironies of science is how little we understand our own brains. There has been amazing progress in neuroscience in the last century, true, but the workings of big melon in charge remain rather mysterious. One such mystery is if that big melon is, in fact, in charge at all, whether it’s […]
