In this episode we explore the history of the brain. Brains in jars, brains in slices, brains under the microscope - more brains than you can shake a wet slice of human brain at. From Einstein’s brain chopped into 240 pieces to Charles Babbage, who at least only had his sliced in two. We also explore the history of emotions – with a bit of good old stiff upper lip we keep calm and carry on. And we delve into the history of mental illness – how Victorians were convinced you could be too loud, too quiet, too happy, too sad, but it was a tightrope walk to be just right for Victorian society.
