However, using the "no brain" logic as evidence for the soul isn't logical in any way.



I agree, although it does bring up an interesting perspective. The brain imo is what makes the physical world interpretable through our senses....

Why do so many people die of head injuries.



Probably from the blood clots that form.

As others have stated the brain does very well at "rewiring" itself around damaged areas. For example my Uncle's motor region for his left hand was damaged at birth. The section of the brain that controlled the right hand ended up doing double duty. The only thing you could notice is that to grasp things he always had to close both hands otherwise you would have never noticed. People that suffer minor strokes manage to rewire to some extent as well.

Here is another article that seems to suggest that sometimes less brain is better. In epileptic children who have severe symptoms that result in learning disabilties, neurosurgeons have been surprised to find that removal the entire hemisphere of damaged brain from patients resulted in not only the preservation of memory and personality, but improved overall mental function and learning ability.
Removing Half Of Brain Improves Epilectic's Lives


I'm beginning to think that this article along with the original articles I posted raise the specter of possibility:

In the case of a brain dead or even mentally disabled individual, would it be a curative procedure to attempt to remove all of the damaged brain matter?? I understand how in stroke patients that it takes time to "rewire", but maybe it would take less time if the damaged area of brain were just removed.

Because parts of their brain are damaged does not mean that they have completely stopped functioning - possibly to the detriment of the patient - Thought processes and information are still being channeled through the damaged areas which may end up distorting everything and making it even harder to "rewire" and process thought and information - Kind of like - a part of your brain is drunk all the time and messing you up.
