    So sorry to hear about your friend. I wish him well.

    Can you describe how he was shocked? Did the electricity pass through his brain somehow?

    There is a famous case of a surgeon that was struck by lightning. He suddenly was compelled to become a pianist and composer, despite never having studied music.

    This might seem like good news, but there is a tragic part to it because he really became compulsive about it and lost his wife.

    There are other cases of lightning causing brain damage, and I'm sure you've heard of electro-shock treatment used to treat mental disorders.

    This forum is not the right place to get medical advice, so studiot's comment is right on target. Find the right experts to help your friend.

    We sometimes get questions similar to this and the advice is the same as above: we can offer an insight into how something works or how it may have affected you, but the electricity and electronics is our realm of expertise and we are not medically trained or competent; if you have medical concerns you should always seek advice from a competent professional.

    Kinda makes me wonder if there was a pre existing condition that was "activated" by the shock. I'm curious if many studies have been done on this.
