Savant syndrome. I watched a video on Savant syndrome today in psychology, and that is truly one of the most incredible things i have ever seen. I have always known what it was, but seeing it on video just made it seem so unbelievable. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savant_syndrome They just spoke to a few people with Savant syndrome, and it was incredible. They played a piano piece of a small name Greek piano composer for a blind autistic man, and after hearing it once he could replay it perfectly. There was another man with autism, he could look at an animal and build an exact and detailed replica of the animal from any molding material within just a few minutes. There was another autistic man, he could tell you the day of the week for any exact date for 40,000 years, and any day that he lived through, he can recall what the weather was like. Finally, another man, also autistic, read a phone book, and when asked a person's name, he could recite their phone number back to the person. Its just incredible, a person with a severely damaged brain hold such genius characteristics. Just wanted a discussion on this.
