Careful, brain is missing? Well, it's an unrealistic TRUE STORY!
This Chinese woman visited the doctor complaining of nausea and dizziness. An MRI scan revealed the 24-year-old had no recognisable cerebellar structure, with a pocket of dark fluid in the back of the brain where the cerebellum should be (the black space on the left VS. normal appearance on the right), yet manages to live a normal life even without that crucial part. The region of the brain is responsible for posture, balance, motor learning including learning to jump and kick a ball and speech. It is located at the base of the skull and contains half the brain's neurons - cells that transmit chemical and electrical signals. She is one of nine people in the world thought to suffer cerebellar agenesis.
