Your One-stop Solution For Pain

A Weird Recipe for Squishy Brains by A Leading Neurologist

Posted by Florida Spine and Injury | Jan 26, 2024 8:26:09 AM
If you're like most people you've never had the opportunity (if you want to look at it this way) to touch a human brain. You probably envision it as having a firm, rubbery type of texture, but in reality, the brain has a much softer texture that feels more like tofu or butter. When you add to that the numerous sharp edges and protuberances inside the skull, it's easy to see how the brain can be injured in events that might not seem particularly violent, like a low speed car crash.
If you're ever wanted to feel the consistency of the brain first hand, but are a bit squeamish about how this could be achieved then world-renowned neurologist Daniel Amen has a solution for you.
Watch the video below to see how you can recreate the squish feel of the human brain:
I haven't cooked this up in my kitchen yet, so drop me a line if you actually recreate Dr. Amen's brain recipe and tell me what you think.
If you'd like to see a more realistic video showing the soft, pliable nature of brain tissue, this if from the University of Utah's Neurosurgery Department (warning, don't watch if you are disturbed by blood as this is a much more clinical video than the first one).
