This video is a bit graphic, but it’s also pretty amazing.
Most of us “think that the brain is sort of the consistency of a rubber ball,” says neurobiologist Suzanne Stensaas of the University of Utah. That’s because the only experience we have is with fixed brains soaked in formaldehyde.
When alive and firing, the brain is actually really soft and compressible, like a sack of goo. “It’s much softer than most of the meat you see in a market,” Stensaas says.
In this video, the neurobiologist explores the anatomy of 1,400 gram brain just removed from an autopsy. The video gave me a whole new understanding and appreciation for how remarkable — and vulnerable — this amazing organ is.
Wear your helmets!
