Amazing Ability comes from Disability

It’s midterms here at CSULA, and instead of adding more textual content, I’m adding some video to be instructive and entertaining at the same time.  Many folks have disabilities and the result changes their ability to do something else.  The brain is especially amazing.  Both autism, epilepsy and brain injury can dramatically alter one’s abilities.   The following videos are about those who are considered savants.  When you have time, watch through the one titled “The Boy with the Incredible Brain,” as the video is the longest.

    Steven Wiltshire is amazing — just stunning this ability to recall and draw that huge volume of landscape detail. It is truly staggering. Good post.
