Einstein's Brain in an App: A new iPad app
lets anyone who wants to take a microscopic look at Albert Einstein's brain, reports AP.
The app was
created by a Chicago museum that got permission to scan and make digital about 350 slides containing very
thin slices of Einstein's brain that were obtained after he died.
Already, doctors studying Einstein's
brain discovered that his parietal lobe — which governs our understanding of math, language and spatial
relationships — was 15 percent wider than normal.
The slides will allow researchers to dig deep into the
genius' brain tissue and possibly find other areas that are different from the rest of our brains.
