Inside Einstein's Brain
Inside Einstein's Brain

Listen
AIR DATE: October 8, 2013

Einstein died in 1955. But since that point, his brain has continued its own, independent journey as a preserved specimen.

Along the way, some of the dissected sections of his brain disappeared from public view. In 2005, scientists used new technology to study the known dissections.

But, in 2010, heirs of the New Jersey pathologist who had removed Einstein’s brain hours after the death turned over to national authorities more Einstein materials, including previously unknown brain photographs.
