Remarkably thick connections between Albert Einstein‘s left and right brain hemispheres offer one possible explanation of his intelligence. The corpus callosum is a large bundle of nerve fibers that bridges the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Researchers report in the journal Brain that the famous physicist Albert Einstein had an especially thick corpus callosum. “This study, more than any other to date, really gets at the ‘inside’ of Einstein’s brain,” Florida State University evolutionary anthropologist Dean Falk said in a press release. “It provides new information that helps make sense of what is known about the surface of Einstein’s brain.”
