There are many subjects of which I would love to read more books. Neurology, and most of all the more exceptional examples of brain functions, for example.
Idiot savants are fascinating to me. They show that the brain has more capacities than we have access to under normal circumstances.
Kim Peek is a famous savant, and there are more videos on YouTube than this one, but I like this one best.
And here is another famous savant: Stephen Wiltshire, a.k.a. the human camera. Incredible!
