Portions of Albert Einsteins brain have been found to be unlike those 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.

I never really thought of him as wildly intelligent. He just thought in different directions than most people of the time.
I’m smarter than Einstein in that at least I never embraced socialism.
All men are geniuses in their own place.
THAT part of his brain was underdeveloped.
This is nothing but whoring after grant money.
A while ago I had a patient who had a small benign tumor in her brain. Her behavior and emotions changed dramatically. When I spoke to her neurologist, he said it had nothing to do with the tumor...nothing.
The fact that she and her family reported significant change to funtioning and there was a newly discovered tumor was jsut an artifact.
No you're not, you never did anything for science, society or anything and nobody's ever heard of you............
Sounds to me like the only thing that defines you is your obsession with politics. Broaden your horizons dude, there's happiness outside of politics if you're willing to look for it........
1927 Solvay conference. Some smart people there.
If he had not been a Jew in Nazi Germany but instead a member of German National Socialist Party this would be a very different world today...
I have personal knowledge of one anecdotal case where changes were not before the diagnosis. Different strokes for different folks. That whole brain thing is way complex.

Spare me the lecture. Like I said, I’m smarter than Einstein in that I never embraced socialism.
half of those guys have a number, constant, law or theory
bearing their name.
My anatomy instructor in college said that Einstein had far more glial cells than a ‘normal’ brain. Not sure how that would account for his intellect.
Is Heisenberg in that picture or not?
“Portions of Albert Einsteins brain have been found”
There’s some really strange stories about what may or may not have happened to his brain. There’s probably no telling for sure whether these guys are actually even working with part of his brain.
Yes. He’s the guy in front of the right shoulder of the guy all by himself in the back right.
Wait...was that an uncertainty joke?
