The search for genius and Einstein's brain

20 March 2012

13 March 2012

Dr Mark Lythgoe (Director, UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging)

To mark Brain Awareness Week, Dr Mark Lythgoe will take audiences on a journey in search of the greatest brain of the 20th century, a brain which was removed during the autopsy of Einstein in 1955.  Through this journey, Dr Lythgoe will then discuss whether Einstein’s brain was extra special, and what this research can tell us about genius. Finally, this lecture will then take a playful look at whether we all have the potential to unlock our creative mind.
