Scientists have discovered some unusual features within the brain of the late Albert Einstein.
Einstein is often considered to be one of the greatest scientists that ever lived, his remarkable intellect and accomplishments in physics continue to resonate on in to the 21st century. When he died in 1955, his brain was removed for examination in an effort to determine if there was anything about it that might account for his genius. Now over 55 years on, scientists are once again seeking clues to his intellect via a series of recently discovered anatomical photographs.
