Was it all just in Albert’s head?
Images of Albert Einstein’s brain are being examined in an attempt to determine if a corollary between its uniqueness and his ingenuity is apparent. In 1955, a doctor at the hospital where Einstein died removed his brain. While it is speculated that the doctor did not have permission to do so, it was indicated that Einstein’s son gave the physician a posthumous approval, according to author Brian Burrell in his book Postcards from the Brain Museum.
"Certain things are normal," Falk told The Huffington Post in a phone interview. "Brain size is normal. Overall shape is asymmetrical, and that is normal. What is unusual is the complexity and convolution in the various parts of the brain."
