Einstein's Brain Was Unusual in Several Respects Read Washington Post Article for details Unusual aspects of Einstein's brain were dense neurons in some areas plus a high ratio of glia cells - which transmit nerve impulses - to neurons Dean Falk's study found his parietal lobes (linked to conceptualization of physics prob.lems) had an unusual pattern of convolutions, rarely seen in others.
