Title: The Mind of a Savant: Language, Learning and Modularity
Written By: Neil Smith
Ianthi-Maria Tsimpli
Description:

Savants are people who are mentally and often physically inpaired but who have one dazzling talent. Savants with mathematical, artistic or musical ability, while rare, are not unheard of, but cases like that of Christopher, who is described here, have never been reported before. In this study Neil Smith and Ianthi Tsimpli provide insight into the nature of language and language learning, and on the relation between language and thought in general.
