An interesting patient: 24-year-old woman complaining of dizziness and nausea . . ..

"A 24-year-old woman complaining of dizziness and nausea was admitted to a hospital in Shandong Province recently, where she told doctors she had struggled with balance all her life. When doctors performed a brain scan, they immediately noticed the problem: The woman was missing her cerebellum."

It's fascinating that she could even be alive.

Similar to cases where patients are found to have been missing an entire hemisphere, it attests to the power of neuroplasticity, and the ability for the brain to use different areas for functions normally residing elsewhere.
