Bring me the brain of Albert Einstein.
Albert Einstein, the Nobel prize-winning physicist who gave the world the theory of relativity, E = mc2 and the law of the photoelectric effect, obviously had a special brain.
In what ways might Einstein’s brain biology have been different from average?
Scientists who have examined his brain have concluded that it is not normal. While Einstein’s brain weighs less than the brain of an average adult male, 2.7lbs versus 3 lbs, the inferior parietal region of the brain is 15% larger than in an average brain.
Albert Einstein was a genius, but he wasn’t the only one – why has his name come to mean something superhuman …… ?.
