A Soft and Squishy Brain

Squishy Brain Video

This incredible pristine brain specimen is fresh out of Anatomy class at the University of Utah. You can even hear the bone saws humming along in the background! The brain has just been removed from an autopsy of a cancer patient who donated his/her body to science.

As Dr. Suzanne Stensaas points out in the video, the take home message is that human brain is extremely soft and squishy. So wear your helmet!
