Conference Spotlight -
Broca's original brains

Nina Dronkers, University of Berkley

Professor Dronkers holding the brain of one of the most famous neurological patients of the 19th century, Louis Victor Leborgne, who could utter one syllable only, from the age of 30 until his death, 21 years later.

After his death on 17 April 1861, his autopsy performed by the French surgeon Pierre Paul Broca who had examined Leborgne while he was alive, leading to establishing the famous Broca's area.

Professor Dronkers (left) had the unique opportunity to scan the brain of Leborgne (and the second Broca's patient, Lelong) using high-resolution volumetric MRI. During our Symposium, she will be discussing some of the spectacular imaging findings.
