Einstein’s Brain Unlocked

Upon his autopsy in 1955, Einstein’s brain is said to have been sliced and scattered among researchers around the world. Where are the pieces now? The journey leads to the rediscovery of hundreds of photos taken during the autopsy as well as an individual in possession of over 100 fragments of Einstein’s brain. The data gathered is brought together to build in 3D CGI, Einstein’s brain as it would have been in his 20’s, when he proposed the relativity theory. An extraordinary journey and the latest in neuroscience turn a new page in the story of the genius’s brain. Can the answer to human genius be found in putting back together Einstein’s brain?
