Meet The German Scientist Whose Brain Was Stolen For Research, And Check Out The Discoveries Made

He was none other than Albert Einstein.


Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who is widely regarded as one of the greatest scientists of all time. Einstein is known for developing the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. His work is known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics, while his intellectual achievements and originality led to Einstein being the greatest genius of all time.


When he died of an abdominal aortic aneurysm on April 18, 1955 in Princeton, New Jersey, his brain was stolen by the pathologist on duty, Thomas Harvis. However, his brain is stolen to reveal the secret of his intelligence.


Einstein's brain was weighed and cut into sections for research by leading pathologists. The patterns and irregularities that appear in his brain are used to support various neuroanatomical ideas with mathematical intelligence.


Studies show that the lateral sulcus (Sylvian fissure), the border region of the brain, is independent of Einstein. The empty space allowed the neurons in his brain to communicate better. This explains why Einstein thought that way.


Compared to the brain of other scientists, Einstein's brain had more glial cells, which allowed him to study stimulating scientific problems throughout his life. The hippocampus, which plays an important role in learning and memory, was significantly larger on the right side of Einstein's brain. His parietal lobe is asymmetrical and the function of the motor cortex is primarily related to his musical ability.


The corpus callosum, the largest bundle of fibers in the brain that connects the two halves of the brain and facilitates communication between the hemispheres, was thicker in Einstein's brain than the others. According to scientists, this study is another indication of his high intelligence.
