Einstein's Brain

This last June (2010), National Public Radio did a report on the whereabouts of Einstein's Brain. The story details, believe it or not, the travels of the brain since Einstein's death over fifty years ago. On many levels, the history of the brain is both interesting and a bit sad that the brain of whom many believe to be the most intelligent person of the twentieth century, was not studied for its secrets but sat in a jar on a shelf.
