Brain Injury results in Musical Talent?

Derek Amato says that a hit on the head turned him into a musical wonder. After hitting his head in October 2006 he found that he could play any music that he heard. He says it came as a surprise one day while he was at a friend’s house. He sat down at the piano – just planning on messing around, and found out that he could indeed play.
