The most unusual human brain known to science

I discovered the brain without any izvilin

The human brain is still largely remains a mystery, not all of its capabilities and features of operation are clear science. For many years conducted research of deviations and violations in the development of this most difficult arranged organ of the human body and, more recently, doctors have discovered perhaps the most bizarre brain, but to whom it belonged, today we can not say for sure.

Among the anatomical specimens of North Texas State Hospital found brain belonged to a man who died in 1970. "Exhibits" assigned inventory number, but the microfilm from the medical records of the patients were lost, so now it is unclear who owned the brain - man or woman.

A distinctive feature of the findings is the complete absence of folds and convolutions in the cerebral cortex. This phenomenon is already known to science called Lissencephaly or Aghir and yet scientists previously have not seen such a distinct form of the disease.

Lissencephaly developed due to lack of movement of neuroblasts (embryonic nerve cells into becoming neurons during development) of a primary neural tube (the germ of the central nervous system).

Typically, children with such disabilities do not live up to ten years, and while the whole life suffering from muscle spasms, seizures, and difficulty in the perception of information (due to the reduction of the surface area of ​​the cortex compared to normal brain). However, finding a fully formed (so to speak) the adult brain.

As suggested by doctors is likely to have the owner of the brain had serious mental disorders, but what is not known. Perhaps scientists will be able to register this phenomenon from a living person, which will carefully examine the violations in mental development at Lissencephaly.
