Live Cam on Brain Slicing Project

From: Karl S.
Sent on: Friday, December 4, 2009 1:17 AM
Henry Gustav Molaison (who was known as patient H.M.) was the subject of a radical 1953 experimental brain surgery in an attempt to treat his epileptic seizures. After the removal of two-thirds of his hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus, and amygdala Mr. Molaison was not able to form new memories. About a year ago Mr. Molaison passed away but left his brain to science, and it is currently being dissected at the University of California San Diego Brain Observatory. The researchers in charge of the project have installed a live video feed with an open invitation to anyone interested in viewing the slicing.
