Albert Einstein’s Amazing Brain

By Catherine Roberts

New images of Albert Einstein’s brain have shown some amazing differences when compared with a normal brain. 14 recently discovered images of his brain have been discovered in the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Maryland. They were then studies by Florida State University evolutionary anthropologist Dean Falk, and his team of researchers.

They compared the images with those of an average brain and found some remarkable differences. Falk said that one extraordinary feature was “a large knob-shaped fold… that represents enlarged motor representation for the left hand.” The Toronto Sun says that, “The researchers also found differences in the prefrontal, somatosensory, primary motor, parietal, temporal, and occipital cortices.”

While there are many differences, the size and shape of Einstein’s brain is consistent with world averages. Falk commented on the unique structure of Albert Einstein’s brain, saying, “These may have provided the neurological underpinnings for some of his visuospatial and mathematical abilities.”
