Check out the big brain on Albert Einstein in this photo11/17/2012
When Albert Einstein died, the pathologist who performed his autopsy took dozens of photographs of his brain, before eventually putting it a formaldehyde-filled jar that he kept in a beer cooler in his office. (Wouldn't you?) Unbelievably, some of those photographs haven't been sufficiently studied until now. A team of anthropologists at Florida State University have scrutinized the pictures, determining that Einstein's brain had abnormalities that might've contributed to his brilliance. For example, his cerebral cortex had an "unusually complex pattern" that gave it an extra-large surface area, possibly allowing him to better visualize abstract concepts. Meanwhile, we just had to sound out the word 'cerebral.' [Source]
