A woman has developed incredible mental abilities after suffering a brain injury in a skiing accident. The unnamed woman has been diagnosed with ‘savant syndrome,” an extremely rare condition which leaves people with amazing musical, artistic, or mathematical abilities. Doctors believe it is due to the right side of the rain trying to compensate for an injury to the left side. Though she was initially diagnosed with a mild concussion, the woman noticed new abilities when her vision, perception, and memory changed drastically. She even told her doctors that she thought she remembered too much. Doctors admitted her into a hospital for testing, and doctors were able to diagnose her with savant syndrome. They do not know if the condition will reverse itself or if the woman will remain the same for the rest of her life.
