Normal woman with half a Brain!


A normal life with half brain! Doctors treating a Chinese woman who complained of feeling weak discovered she only had half a brain. The 39-year-old woman from Wuhan city, has lived a perfectly normal life and only came into hospital after she complained of feeling weak and stiff.

Zhang Linhong, director of Neural Rehabilitation Department at the local hospital, said: "On the MRI scans we were surprised to see that she only has grey matter on the right side. Our usual understanding is that the left brain controls language. But this patient has no problem communicating with people."

The woman's mother said her daughter lives a very normal life and her memory is very good.

"She graduated from high school with good marks. Her memory is very good. She remembers phone numbers and names immediately."

Something appears to be fishy here... Why there is no coverage of this news item by media?
In any case, I am most intrigued. Can any one throw more light?
