Incredible Footage of a Freshly Removed Human Brain Proves that Science Is Amazing

By October 15, 2017 Science

The human brain is literally amazing in all of its extravagances. It’s the most complex structure ever known to man, and just wait until you see the real living thing in the hands of a person!

The human brain is one of the most fascinating things on Earth. While our bodies as a whole are extremely complex and mind-boggling, the human brain is beyond fathomable! Composed of trillions of electric signals, impulses, and transmitters paired with cells, neurochemicals, and billions of stretching arteries and veins, you have the human brain! All of this fancy science happens within this pink squishy organ and it is everything that ever made you who you are! As a child I used to have a theory that our brains merely used our bodies as machines to communicate with each other; maybe I was onto something!

There is honestly no way to explain how awesome our brains are! While not everyone uses theirs, we can use our brains to do groundbreaking and world-transforming acts. You won’t realize just how fascinating the brain is until you see it! This glorious 3lb piece of Pink Beauty belongs to one courageous cancer patient who lost their battle has generously donated their body to science, transforming the whole world’s perception on the human brain! The test subject, unfortunately, passed from complications during cell transplantation.

The video of the human brain was published back in 2013 by the University of Utah Neuroscience Initiative to help give a new aid to students of neuroscience who do not have access to high-end brain models and preserved brains.

“Students tend to think that the brain is sort-of the consistency of a rubber ball, and that’s because in the laboratories, and teaching specimens, we have formalin-fixed brains,” says neuroanatomist Suzanne Stensaas in the video.

“However, if you’re a trauma surgeon or a neurosurgeon, you realize that the brain is really very, very soft, and much more vulnerable than the impression you get when you’re looking at the fixed brain. We are fortunate enough to show you what a normal, unfixed, recently deceased patient’s brain would look like,” says Stensaas.
