Celebrity brain sliced, film at 11!

MainbrainThe Brain Observatory - In Memory of H.M. webcasts the microtome slicing of H.M.'s brain in realtime. I guess this is a natural step for one of the "superstar patients" of neuroscience.

The experience is strangely voyeuristic. We have come very far from the Trojan Room coffee pot of the early 90's.

The idea of sponsored histological glass slides is also odd. But any way to get money to research, I guess.
