Neuroscientist Shaves Her Head to Better Illustrate How the Brain Works/Look Awesome

MIT Neuroscientist Nancy Kanwisher is sick of all this damn hair making it difficult to demonstrate just where certain regions of the brain lie. Either that, or she was just looking for an excuse to shave her head to look awesome/begin her journey towards supervillain-dom.

Kanwisher posted the video on NancysBrainTalks, where she’ll teach you even more about the brain than this quick lesson in neuroanatomy.
