Einstein Brain


Source :http://www.answers.com/topic/einstein-s-brain-lancet-jpg.

Photographs of Albert Einstein's brain, taken in 1955. The original caption indicated that: "A, superior; B, left lateral; C, right lateral; D, inferior; E, midsagittal view of the left hemisphere. The arrow in each hemisphere indicates the posterior ascending branch of the Sylvian fissure as it runs into (is confluent with) the postcentral sulcus. Consequently, there is no parietal operculum in either hemisphere. Scale bar, 1 cm."
