The secret behind Einstein's intelligence revealed

World Bulletin / News Desk

Weiwei Men of the East China Normal University revealed some amazing facts about Einstein's intelligence in a publication in the Brain Journal last week.

The researcher Weiwei Men has developed a way to color-code the thickness of fibres between the two hemispheres of the brain. This measures how well the two sides of the brain connect to each other.

When compared to the brains of men who were 26-years-old and above, it was found that the fibres between the right and left sides of Einstein's brain outdid that of the average person. Neuroscientists have also noted that the stronger the fibres between the two sides of the brain, the more intelligent one is likely be.

Einstein's brain became a subject of research after the scientist died in 1955. Pathologist Thomas Harvey extracted the brain with the permission of Einstein's family before his remains were cremated. Research conducted in the 1980s revealed an abundance of glial cells which are vital to the mental functions.
