Einstein’s brain WAS different

A peek into the mind of a genius

It was, without doubt, one of the finest minds of all time. Now scientists have proved that Albert Einstein’s brain was not only unique in its ability to process concepts: it was also physically different.

New research comparing the characteristics of Einstein’s brain with that of four men of similar age has found remarkable structural differences.

Parts of his brain were found to be larger than those of the others, and he also appeared to have had more brain cells, scientists have found previously.

Einstein has long topped my list of historical figures I’d most like to have met. I find this bit of research fascinating.
