    Researchers looking at high-resolution images of Albert Einstein’s brain say that stronger than usual connections between the left and right hemisphere’s contributed to his intelligence.

     Researchers from China say the reason Albert Einstein was so smart was because the left and right hemispheres of his brain were extremely wellconnected to one another.  By comparing high-resolution images of Einstein’s brain, they found he had extensive connections between specific regions of his cerebral hemispheres, compared to control groups—whichfacilitated interhemispheric communication.
