Yes, I had read about the fascinating case of the 24-year-old Chinese woman mentioned here who showed up at the doctor complaining of dizziness, only to find out that her entire cerebellum was missing! Can you imagine suddenly learning at that age that essentially more than half of your brain is missing?!? (For more details, look up the online article in Science Alert entitled “This Woman Lived 24 Years Without Knowing She Was Missing Her Entire Cerebellum.”) It just goes to show how incredibly resilient and adaptable the brain is! I also loved the discussion here about the way studies have shown that bits of information can be processed without any conscious recognition; there’s just so much going on at the subconscious level. Super-interesting!
