mernil writes: "New Scientist reports: "A man with an unusually tiny brain manages to live an entirely normal life despite his condition, which was caused by a fluid build-up in his skull /.../ Intelligence tests showed the man had an IQ of 75, below the average score of 100 but not considered mentally retarded or disabled. "- What I find amazing to this day is how the brain can deal with something which you think should not be compatible with life," comments Max Muenke, a paediatric brain defect specialist at the National Human Genome Research Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, US."
