Campus Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum / Harry Reid Center
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium

Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "The Amazing Saga of Albert Einstein’s Brain: Truth IS Stranger-Than-Fiction,"  a talk by Dean Falk, professor of anthropology, Florida State University/Tallahassee.

After his death in 1955, Albert Einstein’s brain was removed from his body (against his earlier wishes), photographed, and dissected. Although bits and pieces of the brain were distributed to a few scientists, most of the materials were lost to science until last year. Intended for non-specialists, this talk discusses the extraordinary saga of Einstein’s brain and surprising findings that scientists have made from the new materials.
