THE THINGS ABOUT EINSTEINíS BRAIN THAT MAY HAVE MADE HIM SO SMART
November 17, 2012

(NATIONAL) -- Are geniuses born hard wired that way or do just smart people, or those with a predisposition to be smart simply embrace education and educate themselves along the way in life to blossom into geniuses?

The latest on that question is portions of Albert Einstein's brain: they have been found to be unlike the brains of most people and could be related to his extraordinary cognitive abilities, according to a new study led by Florida State University evolutionary anthropologist Dean Falk.

A report in Science Daily here says Falk and several colleagues have described for the first time the entire cerebral cortex of Einstein's brain from an examination of 14 recently discovered photographs.

They compared Einstein's brain to 85 "normal" human brains and, in light of current functional imaging studies, “interpreted its unusual features.”

What they found was that although the overall size and asymmetrical shape of Einstein's brain were normal, “the prefrontal, somatosensory, primary motor, parietal, temporal and occipital cortices were extraordinary," said Falk, who is a Professor of Anthropology at Florida State. "These may have provided the neurological underpinnings for some of his visuospatial and mathematical abilities.” Falk added.

The full study about Einstein’s brain will be published Nov. 16 in the journal Brain.

After Einstein's death in 1955 his brain was removed and photographed from multiple angles with the permission of his family and it was also later sectioned into 240 blocks from which histological slides were prepared.
