His Abnormal Brain- Kelsey Crum

April 18, 1955
Einstein took his last breath
Thomas Stoltz Harvey
Without permission,
Removed Einstein’s brain,
And took it home to study.
That brain was the secret behind a great man
As he dissected it,
He realized that some parts of the brain
Were abnormally large
(OF COURSE A GENIUS WOULD HAVE A BIG BRAIN!)
He had more glial cells in the region of the brain that synthesizes information,
The inferior parietal lobe,
(often associated with mathematical abilities!)
Was larger than normal.
But some parts were missing!
He lacked a Sylvian fissure
His unusual brain allowed neurons
To communicate better
Other studies show that it was denser than normal.
Even though his brain was missing some parts,
The parts he did have were large enough to make up for it.
