Doctors are removing half of the brains of people suffering chronic seizures to cure the patient! The patient retains their full faculties and personality.

I'm just curious about this topic.
For example dementia patients lose far less of their brain than hemispherectomies but lose huge slabs of consciousness etc
How much of the brain can be removed before the personality disappears? There are pics avaiable of people with most of the brain gone but they keep their identity intact and chat normally.
Certain things don't add up about the brain. For example a tiny brain clot can end a life but there are cases of people who take a bullet or spike thru the brain who live long lives
