A boy with cerebellar hypoplasia
Of everything I saw today, this was the item that most impressed me. As noted at the NeuroLOGICA blog, the video above errs toward hyperbole and is misleading when it indicates that the boy "does not have" a cerebellum or a pons; he almost certainly has hypoplastic ones. Still, it is a remarkable story of the adaptive plasticity of the human brain.
