Albert Einsteins Brain

What was special about Einstein's brain?

Albert Einstein

After Einstein's death, Thomas Harvey the postmortem was in charge. Thomas Harvey had another thought in his mind that day. After dissecting the body, the brain of the astronomer was removed. He did it secretly. Did not tell Einstein's family. Harvey pulls the brain out of the skull. Then place it in a jar of formalin. Princeton Hospital was not kept for too long. Harvey brought the maggot home. Boxed jarrata with brain and put it in his room. Then began the uphill journey in Harvey's life. His illicit relationship with a nurse at Princeton Hospital escalated. That's it. The job goes to Harvey. Then the whole United States rolled up the leaves. One wife after another, but the treasure of the tuberculosis has left the Einstein's brain magata. But Steven Brennan, a reporter for the Monthly New Jersey newspaper, found out that Brian was hiding.

Dr. Brain was discovered in the 5th. Levi traveled to Kansas to visit his new workplace, Thomas. There, Steve Levy found Einstein's brain in two boxes of wood, inscribed with a "Costa Cider." Except for some parts of the cerebral cortex (the back of the head), and the rest of the cerebral cortex (upper part of the brain), the entire brain was cut into thin slices for study.

In 1, a paper came out that was the senior author of the paper. Thomas Harvey. Neuroscientists have identified the brain as one of four areas, called the Broadman map. According to this map, the area number 7 and 6 of the human brain are very important. Area 1 works for people's planning, memory and attention and Area 3 works with language and complex issues. Dr. Tomas Harvey's team studied the ratios of neurons and glial cells in these two areas. They compared the proportion of Einstein's brain to that of the brain of the deceased, who had an average age. The result of this paper was "The results of the analysis suggest that in the left area 39, the neuronal: glial ratio for the Einstein brain is significantly smaller than the mean for the control population (t = 2.62, df 9, p less than 0.05, two-tailed). Einstein's brain did not differ significantly in the neuronal: glial ratio from the controls to any of the other three areas studied. “That means there was "multiple glial cells for one neuron" in the area just to the left of Einstein's brain, which was not in the other 8 brain. The explanation for this result was such that - because more glial cells in Area 1, it means more Einstein's brain consumes more energy - which may have led to his thinking power and theoretical knowledge more than normal. A similar paper was published in 23, wherein Einstein's brain's glial cell structure (such as large astrocyte processes) was different from that of others.

Another paper also came up with a discussion about Einstein's brain, which was published in 1. According to this paper, his brain has a weight of 120 grams which is less than normal (5 grams). The area of   his brain was thinner than that of the others (3 in comparison) and had a lot more neurons. That means there were too many neurons in a very small space.

In another study in 1, Einstein's cerebral parietal lobe (brain divided into 8 major parts - parietal lobe is just above the head) is notorious; The lateral notches were small / missing. And this lobe / brain of Brain works with mathematical reasoning, spatial thinking. On the side, his brain was more than 5% wide. All together, it is thought that his neurons would have enough space to work, which would help his mathematical and spatial thinking. In fact, it is impossible to study the brain very accurately. One of the major disadvantages / limitations of research on Einstein's brain is that there is only one Genius genius on earth. Therefore, to make this research more acceptable, the brain of the world famous mathematicians must be collected. The results of research on the brain of such a large-scale scientist like Einstein may at one time be able to accurately predict, which part of the brain actually compels a large-scale scientist.
