Document Summary

Two prominent features found in einstein"s brain: his sylvian fissure (division that separates the temporal love form the frontal and parietal lobes) had an unusual anatomical organization. His brain showed strange confluence of the sylvian fissure with the central sulcus on the brain"s lateral surface. Most brains have sylvian fissure that projects posteriorly to end in an area surrounded by the supramarginal gyrus: his inferior parietal lobe was actually larger, and thicker in lateral to medial extent. Increased size of einstein"s inferior parietal cortex might have been related to his intellectual capacity. Neuroanatomy is the study of the nervous system"s structure concerned with identifying the parts of the nervous system and describing how the parts are connected. Investigations occur at one of two levels: gross neuroanatomy = focuses on general structures and connections visible to the naked eye, fine neuroanatomy (microscopic anatomy) = describes organization of neurons and their connections and subcellular structure.
