New Scientist Breaking News – 'Rewired brain' revives patient after 19 years

New Scientist Breaking News – ‘Rewired brain’ revives patient after 19 years:
Surprisingly, the circuits look nothing like normal brain anatomy. A lot of the damage had been to axons that passed from one side of the brain to the other, torn by the force of the accident. But Schiff says that new connections seem to have grown across around the back of the brain, forming structures that do not exist in normal brains.

if the brain can rewire itself… then why does it wire itself the way it does? and how do societies, cultures, and child raising traditions affect that wiring?
