Researchers examine newly released photos of Einstein’s brain to understand what physical features might have been behind his genius. 
After Einstein’s death, pathologist Thomas Harvey removed his brain, preserved it in formalin, and took dozens of black-and-white photos of it before cutting it up into 240 blocks. He then took tissue samples from each block, mounted them onto microscope slides, and distributed the slides to some of the world’s best neuropathologists.
And still, as Einstein himself might have agreed, there’s more to “Truth and Beauty” than biology and wiring.
