Pheasant Brain, photograph.
Description:
This is a black and white photograph of a pheasant's brain. The photograph was pasted on a piece of paper that identifies the organ. This is likely the brain of a pheasant which was seriously injured by German bombing during 1940 or 1941. Study of the pheasant’s brain at the No. 1 Neurological Hospital resulted in a paper by Drs. Colin Russel, Oscar William Stewart, and William Cone that was printed in the Lancet and titled “Injury to the central nervous system by blast: Observations on a pheasant.”
