What would it really feel like to touch a human brain? [Biology]
posted November 30 2013 8:35.40 by spic0m




Ask yourself what a human brain feels like. Most of us would probably describe it as heavy, and that's certainly true (the average person's brain matter tips the scales at about 3 pounds). But what of its consistency? What does a mass of tens of billions of neurons feel like to the touch?

Fair warning: the video below features HD footage of a freshly dissected human brain. Not surprisingly, it's a little graphic - but it's also 100% fascinating, not to mention it shows a brain very different from the one you're probably imagining.
