On Brains and Zombies

By October 25, 2012

Follow me on:

An imagined comparison between human and zombie brains.

To bring some life back to a subject too many people consider deathly dull, two researchers have reflected on the paragon of revitalization-- the undead.

Bradley Voytek, Ph.D, and Tim Verstynen, Ph.D are serious neuroscientists who also happen to be members of the Zombie Research Society, a collection of experts on the fictional monster of pulp movie fame. Using their knowledge of neurology, the researchers designed a model of what the zombie brain would look like based off the symptoms zombies exhibit, such as the insatiable craving for human flesh.

The result is a combination of neuroscience and horrific fun, just in time for Halloween. You can read more here: The Zombie Brain What Would an Undead Brain Look Like?
