New, unpublished photos show that Albert Einstein’s brain was unusual

Albert Einstein is considered by most as the greatest mind throughout human history. Of course, some may argue that Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton or even Nikola Tesla could top that list, but we put Einstein atop ours. In a newly published article that is based on 14 newly discovered photographs of Einstein’s brain…..we now know that his brain was truly unique. From the following Washington Post article:

For example, the regions on the left side of the brain that facilitate sensory inputs into and motor control of the face and tongue are much larger than normal; and his prefrontal cortex — linked to planning, focused attention and perseverance — is also greatly expanded.

“In each lobe,” including the frontal, parietal and occipital lobes, “there are regions that are exceptionally complicated in their convolutions,” Falk says. As for the enlarged regions linked to the face and tongue, Falk thinks that this might relate to Einstein’s famous quote that his thinking was often “muscular” rather than done in words.
