Brain Food


The term 'brain food' relates to a thought experiment by Dr John Keller of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In this experiment he determined how much of his own brain a human could eat before the task became physically impossible. After removing the top of his cranium, he managed to guzzle almost 3/4 of his brain, avoiding the motion centres and areas responsible for cognative thought.
The rest of the brain however, had to be fed to him by an assistant.
