Summary
"Imagine surviving a massive brain injury, then waking up in hospital to discover your personality has completely transformed. It happened to builder and former jailbird Tommy McHugh; also to Jon Sarkin, once a shy and conventional chiropractor. Now McHugh easily bursts into tears; Sarkin is garrulous and intense. After suffering strokes both stunned their doctors, families and friends by suddenly revealing a hitherto hidden and compulsive talent to create amazing art that is confounding critics and collectors alike. The brain's creative potential is being explored by scientists like Professor Allan Snyder, director of Sydney's Centre for the Mind. Snyder believes everyone possesses the extraordinary skills of savants. This documentary shows how he experiments to simulate the effects of autism and unlock the potential of the brain's right hemisphere. Snyder works at the controversial cutting edge of brain research using a technique he calls transcranial magnetic stimulation." -- website
