Phrenology Head

Thursday, 11 October 2012 9:37:33 PM Australia/Sydney

Ever wonder what’s going on inside your brain? Well you won't be the first or the last to ponder such an essential and mind boggling question. Today, modern science has the benefit of technology to investigate the workings of your noggin, but back in 18th century, there wasn’t too much in the way of MIRs. Still that did not dissuade German physician Franz Joseph Gall from trying to comprehend the brain. Phrenology is a pseudoscience that revolves around the basic premise that brain as an organ of the mind and localized areas of the brain are responsible for different emotions, traits and senses. Whilst this is not too far from the truth, Phrenology takes it step further by basing a person’s attitudes and personalities with corresponding bumps and lumps located on their head. For example the left part of your forehead, according to a phrenology head, is for 'literary, observing, and knowing', whilst the area near your right ear is for 'destructiveness'. Luckily for those of you with a lump above your right ear, Phrenology is not based on any scientific research or case studies, more of a guess, or trial and error. However, the Phrenology head remains a quirky addition to any study and an easy conversation piece that has been featured in Sherlock Holmes to Doctor House's office!
