    Was this CAT scan verified, has John Lorber's work been proved to be wishful thinking or exaggeration, does anyone else continue to do such work ?

    OR

    Is it too weird to even investigate ? There must be a scientific answer, but for now we don't want to think about it ?

    In hydrocephalus the brain is not missing it is just compressed. When the fluid pressure is released the brain springs back.

    This is the first I have heard of the story the OP quotes. Does anyone have a source link?

    But the reduction in brain tissue was extreme, even if it happened slowly over a long period of time. Apparently there was only somewhere between 50 and 150 grams of brain tissue left, a thin layer of a millimeter or so under the skull. This was apparently almost exclusively grey matter (cerebral neurons), with no white matter. This is compared with the normal brain weighing between 1200 and 1500 grams. Despite this, the patient, Roger, had a measured IQ of 128. No matter how you look at it, it is an anomaly that has not been explained, and seems to put in question the mind=brain mantra.

    If it was really that stunning, Lorber should have written it up. He didn't, it was Lorber's party piece, he liked to wheel it out to stir people up.
