 Musical Genius Post Concussion

A Lacrosse player woke up with musical talents after suffering from concussions while playing.

Lachlan Connors, who was heartbroken when a concussion refrained him from playing contact sports again, woke up with the ability to play musical instruments effortlessly, News.com.au reported.


According to his mother, the Colorado teenager didn't have any musical talent when he was a child, but after he sustained a concussion during a game, he was able to play more than 13 instruments by ear.

Connors was allowed to get back to game but after suffering from subsequent concussions and suffering from hallucinations and epileptic seizures, he was asked never to play again.

Dr. Spyridon Papadopoulos told CBS4 that Connors talent may have been lying latent in his brain and somehow was uncovered by his brain rewiring after the injury.
