Phineas Gage - in 1848 Phineas was working on the railway when a terrible accident saw him receive an iron tamper through his cheek up into his brain and out the top of his head. Minutes after the accident Phineas was up and walking around able to carry on conversation. He went on to recover from his accident but friends and family report that he was a different man, altogether, from the Phineas they knew. This Phineas was prone to outbursts and lacked inhibition. His accident served to teach a lot to neurologists about the map of the brain and its ability to withstand injury.
