The Incredible Brain (Infographic)

"You have three pounds of brain in your head. Most of it is just water. But what you are capable with the rest is staggering."

Wow.

Check out this interesting infographic from Smarter.org on the savant brain. One of the people featured is musical genius and pianist, Derek Paravicini, who I remember seeing on 60 Minutes. Derek was born blind and autistic, yet has "absolute pitch" — meaning when he hears a chord with ten notes in it, he can identify every one. Makes you wonder what we're capable of!
