Discover the Human Brain’s True Squishiness in this Amazing Science Video

What do we know about the human brain? Add this to the list: the rubbery, embalmed specimen we know and love is a mightily misleading one. It’s almost fossilized by comparison.

Suzanne Stensaas, Ph.D., Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah School of Medicine, demonstrates just how tender and vulnerable the thinking organ really is.

My favorite anatomical term in this entire video is “interpeduncular cistern.” A close second is “cerebral peduncle.”
