In 1978, it was more than 20 years since Einstein’s brain disappeared. Harvey, who took away his brain, did not publish a research report on Einstein’s brain during the period when he disappeared.
Just as people began to forget about it, a reporter named Stephen levy became interested in it. He decided to look for the missing brain. But how could it be so easy to find someone who has disappeared for nearly 20 years? In the case of using all his contacts to no avail, he had to choose the most stupid way to search the list of doctors in the whole country, and the result was not satisfactory He found it.
Harvey is now working as an outpatient doctor in a small city in Kansas. When Harvey faced the phone call from this reporter, he did not immediately admit his identity, but remained silent for a long time. It can be surprise, it can be doubt, it can be anger. We have no idea.
After a long silence, Harvey slowly admitted his identity and accepted the reporter’s request for door-to-door interview.
The next day, the reporter came to Harvey’s office. At this time, Harvey had already become a middle-aged man full of vicissitudes.
After a while of greetings, the reporter went straight to the topic and wanted to know where Einstein’s brain is now. At the beginning, Harvey did not give a positive answer, but said a lot about Einstein, which was obviously not the answer the reporter wanted to hear.
Under the reporter’s repeated questioning, Harvey gave up escaping and took out a can of sticky things from a paper box in a corner. After careful observation, the reporter found that this is the Einstein brain he had been looking for.
The reporter who solved the mystery of the whereabouts of Einstein’s brain flew back to the newspaper that night and drove out the interview manuscript overtime. His editor in chief was overjoyed and decided to publish the interview on the front page of New Jersey monthly.
A few days later, the news caused an uproar. People in the streets were talking about Einstein’s brain, and even the famous talk show “Tonight Show” was also rubbing this hot spot. It can be said that 20 years later, the Einstein fever has been rekindled, and under this upsurge, Thomas Harvey has also re entered people’s vision.
However, Harvey has not made any achievements during this period. He is not so much studying the brain as a conscientious watchman. Fortunately, this news has attracted the attention of many scientists, including Dr. Marian Damon, a neuroscientist. She actively contacted Harvey and expressed her willingness to assist him in his research.
Harvey thought it over again and decided to give Dr. Damon part of Einstein’s brain tissue. Dr. Damon is worthy of being an outstanding neuroscientist. She soon wrote an article entitled “scientist’s brain: Albert Einstein” and published it in the academic journal “experimental neuroscience”.
In this paper, Damon found that the number of glial cells in Einstein’s brain is 73% higher than that of ordinary people, which can make his neuronal system get more cell support, so that the brain becomes more rapid and agile.
In addition, a doctor named Sandra Vettel found that the parietal lobe of Einstein’s brain is 15% wider than that of ordinary people, and this part is precisely responsible for mathematical operations and spatial reasoning. The developed parietal lobe of his brain makes it easier for him to think about space and time, and even to visualize the theory of relativity in his brain.
Papers like this have sprung up all of a sudden. Everyone seems to be revealing how different Einstein’s brain is, but no one dares to draw a conclusion to explain the relationship between these differences and “genius”.
Is there really no way to solve the mystery of Einstein’s brain?
Xiaobian thinks that the answer is not in his brain, but in his study. The room full of manuscripts left behind is enough to prove that Einstein’s great achievement does not only depend on his developed brain, but he spends all his rest time thinking.
He continued to play equations after a failed draft. We usually thought that those great theories came from that flash of inspiration. But in fact, only he knew the frustration and frustration of countless failures behind it. So when someone interviewed Einstein about why he was able to put forward so many theories to change the world, he calmly replied, “I’m not very smart, It’s just that I get along with problems a little bit longer. “
